Magnetosphere Seminars

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.

Venus: Ionospheric Heavy Ion Flows and H+/O+ Escape Rates

Speaker:  Moa Persson [Swedish Institute of Space Physics]
Date & Time:  Tuesday, May 07, 2019 ,  4:00 pm
Location:  LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)
Abstract:

We have shown that the ratio of H+/O+ escape rate decreases from solar minimum to maximum. This is an important characteristic of the Venusian atmospheric escape as it is highly connected to the escape of water and the atmospheric evolution.

Predicting GNSS disruptions using Machine Learning

Speaker:  Karthik Venkataramani [ASTRA LLC.]
Date & Time:  Tuesday, Jan 22, 2019 ,  4:00 pm
Location:  LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)
Abstract:

A data-driven approach is employed to develop machine learning based models that utilize available historical datasets to produce a model capable of forecasting GNSS disturbances.

Alfven Wave Propagation in a 3D Model of the Io Plasma Torus

Speaker:  Parker Hinton [APS]
Date & Time:  Tuesday, Jan 15, 2019 ,  4:00 pm
Location:  LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)
Abstract:

We use a combination of in situ plasma data (Voyager 1), physical chemistry, and Cassini UVIS observations to constrain a diffusive equilibrium model of the Io plasma torus (IPT) in three dimensions.
