Inversions for Deep Solar Meridional Flow Using Spherical Born Kernels

Author: Vincent Böning
The solar meridional flow is a crucial ingredient in modern dynamo theory. Seismic estimates of this flow have, however, been contradictory in deeper layers below about $0.9\,R_\odot$. Results from time-distance helioseismology h ... more

The GREGOR Fabry‐Pérot Interferometer (GFPI) ‐ Technical Innovations and Results achieved in 2013

Author: Klaus Gerhard Puschmann
This paper shall provide a summary of not yet published technical innovations to the GREGOR Fabry-Pérot Interferometer (GFPI) at the 1.5m GREGOR Solar Telescope (Europe's largest solar telescope) that I implemented in 2013 as the ... more

Modelling solar and stellar brightness variabilities

Author: Alexander Shapiro
Total and spectral solar irradiance, TSI and SSI, have been measured from space since 1978. This is accompanied by the development of models aimed at replicating the observed variability by relating it to solar surface magnetism. ... more

The SpaceInn-SISMA database: characterization of a large sample of variable and active stars by means of HARPS spectra

Author: Monica Rainer
We created a large database of physical parameters and variability indicators by fully reducing and analysing the large number of spectra taken to complement the asteroseismic observations of the CoRoT satellite. 7103 spectra of 2 ... more

The Importance of Long-term Synoptic Observations and Data Sets for Solar Physics and Helioseismology

Author: Markus Roth
A casual single glance at the Sun would not lead an observer to conclude that it varies. The discovery of the 11-year sunspot cycle was only made possible through systematic daily observations of the Sun over 150 years and even to ... more

Stellar magnetic activity and variability of oscillation parameters - An investigation of 24 solar-like stars observed by Kepler

Author: René Kiefer
Context. The Sun and solar-like stars undergo activity cycles for which the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. The oscillations of the Sun are known to vary with its activity cycle and these changes provide diagnostics ... more

A new cosmic coincidence in conjunction with the cosmic expansion.

Author: Christian Nutto
The discovery of the cosmic acceleration (Perlmutter & Riess, 1999; Perlmutter et al., 1999; Riess et al., 1998) along with the presence of dark matter is one of the most intriguing puzzles in modern physics and cosmology. Up to n ... more

The Carina Nebula and Gum 31 molecular complex: I. Molecular gas distribution, column densities and dust temperatures

Author: Michael Burton
We report high resolution observations of the 12CO(1 → 0) and 13CO(1 → 0) molecular lines in the Carina Nebula and the Gum 31 region obtained with the 22-m Mopra telescope as part of the The Mopra Southern Galactic Plane CO Su ... more
