Travel information

There are several airports nearby Freiburg:

 
1. Basel/Mulhouse/Freiburg, from there you can continue to Freiburg train station either by bus or by train (1 hour travel distance).

 
2. Strassbourg, from there you can continue to Freiburg by train going via Offenburg (2 hours travel distance).

 
3. Frankfurt, from there you can continue to Freiburg by the fast ICE trains (2.5 hours travel distance).

 
4. Zurich, from there you can continue via trains (2.5 hours travel distance).


For international arrivals, i.e. from outside Europe, the best options are flying to Frankfurt or Zurich and continuing from there by train.

Germany offers a good network of train connections. Major cities in Germany including Freiburg are connected by the fast ICE trains. The German (and European) train schedule is available at: http://www.bahn.de

Abstract:
Context. Solar-like oscillations exhibit a regular pattern of frequencies. This pattern is dominated by the small and large frequency separations between modes. The accurate determination of these parameters is of great interest, because they give information about e.g. the evolutionary state and the mass of a star. Aims. We want to develop a robust method to determine the large and small frequency separations for time series with low signal-tonoise ratio. For this purpose, we analyse a time series of the Sun from the GOLF instrument aboard SOHO and a time series of the star KIC 5184732 from the NASA Kepler satellite by employing a combination of Fourier and Hilbert transform. Methods. We use the analytic signal of filtered stellar oscillation time series to compute the signal envelope. Spectral analysis of the signal envelope then reveals frequency differences of dominant modes in the periodogram of the stellar time series. Results. With the described method the large frequency separation $\Delta\nu$ can be extracted from the envelope spectrum even for data of poor signal-to-noise ratio. A modification of the method allows for an overview of the regularities in the periodogram of the time series.

Abstract:
The development of a new fitting tool to handle with high-resolution acoustic spectra of the Sun is of central interest to allow for measuring the asteroseismic properties of solar oscillations in a robust and reliable way. A Bayesian approach implemented in the recently released code DIAMONDS and an extension of this code applied to the case of Sun-as-a-star datasets from both GOLF and VIRGO instruments are presented.

Abstract:
The wealth of seismic data available from space borne missions (SOHO, CoRoT, Kepler, SDO,…), and from ground-based observations (GONG, Bison, ground-based large programmes…), is stimulating solar and stellar structure and evolution studies but is also opening new scientific perspectives (e.g. characterization of planetary systems, stellar population in our galaxy, etc…). These applications address a broad scientific community within and beyond the solar and stellar communities. They require combining data of various types and from various sources. The Seismic Plus Portal intends to help this increasing use of seismic information by providing, at a well-identified place, a homogeneous description and access for sources of solar and stellar seismic data as well as for sources of complementary and ground-based data. The Seismic Plus portal is now open and available at http://voparis­spaceinn.obspm.fr/seismic­plus/. It is currently being developed in the framework of the SPACEInn project (Exploitation of Space Data for Innovative Helio- and Asteroseismology) financed by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). We describe here the opening of the Seismic Plus portal and provide a short description of its main functionalities.
