The Heliophysics seminars are intended to:
  • allow guests and local members of the plasma physics community to present heliophysics related research and foster collaborations
  • facilitate development of theoretical tools for understanding fundamental physical processes such as reconnection, turbulence, waves, and transport that control the dynamics in the context of the heliosphere
  • provide a forum to facilitate cross-fertilization between laboratory plasma physics, astrophysics, and heliospheric science
Unless otherwise noted, heliophysics seminars are held Thursdays at 2 PM, in the Theory Conference Room, T169.
