Magnetosphere Seminars

Check back soon for the Fall 2018 Semester Schedule.

LASP holds a series of informal seminars focused on space physics and plasma research relating to the magnetospheres of Earth and other planets. The intended audience is space and planetary physics researchers in the Boulder area, although any interested persons are welcome to attend.

View the Address and Directions page for detailed directions to any of the LASP locations.

Using Electron Flux Oscillations as Indicators of ULF Wave Radial Diffusion

Speaker:  Theodore Sarris [Democritus University of Thrace‚Äč]
Date & Time:  Tuesday, Jul 17, 2018 ,  3:30 pm
Location:  LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)

We investigate the parameters affecting the appearance and amplitudes of 100s-keV electron flux oscillations, which appear under the effect of Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) fluctuations in the magnetosphere. To this direction, particle tracing simulations are conducted through a parametric study. It is found that the width in energy of electron energy channels are a critical… Read more »


Jupiter’s Magnetosphere is *now* seen by Juno JADE

Speaker:  Rob Wilson [LASP]
Date & Time:  Tuesday, May 08, 2018 ,  3:30 pm
Location:  LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)

The at-launch mission plan of Juno barely allowed for exploration of the Jovian middle/outer magnetosphere, with only a narrow sliver of local time coverage to ~40Rj. However that plan has since changed, resulting in wide coverage over the proposed mission of 33 science orbits. Juno has completed a dozen perijove passes so far, with superb… Read more »
