Workshop Report: A New Synoptic Solar Observing Network

Author: Markus Roth
Since all space weather originates in and on the Sun, forecasters need continuous, long-term, consistent, and reliable solar data as a foundation for useful predictions. An effective strategy to obtain nearly continuous solar data ... more

Recent developments in helioseismic analysis methods and solar data assimilation

Author: Markus Roth
We overview recent advances and results in enhancing and developing helioseismic analysis methods and in solar data assimilation. In the first part of this paper we will focus on selected developments in time-distance and global h ... more

Spicules and their on-disk counterparts - the main driver for solar chromospheric heating?

Author: Klaus Gerhard Puschmann
The question how the outer solar atmosphere is heated from solar photospheric temperatures of about 5800K up to solar chromospheric and coronal temperatures of about 20.000K and millions of degrees respectively, remained without a ... more

Validation of Spherical Born Approximation Sensitivity Functions for Measuring Deep Solar Meridional Flow

Author: Vincent Böning
Accurate measurements of deep solar meridional flow are of vital interest for understanding the solar dynamo. In this paper, we validate a recently developed method for obtaining sensitivity functions (kernels) for travel-time mea ... 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 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
