LASP Magnetosphere Seminars (FOM)

2014 Seminar Schedule

Below is a schedule of the informal LASP Friends of the Magnetosphere(FOM) Seminars for the Fall 2014 semester. 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 in most instances any interested persons are welcome to attend. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Rob.Wilson at

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

Sept 16, 2014 – “TBD”

Speaker:   E. Joshua Rigler (U.S.G.S.)
Date & Time:   September 16, 2014 ,  4:00 PM Location: LASP Space Science Building, room N248 upstairs.


Aug 12, 2014 – “Estimates of ULF Wave Radial Diffusion of Relativistic Electrons in the Radiation Belts using the Van Allen Probes, THEMIS and GOES”

Speaker:   Theodore Sarris (LASP & Democritus University, Greece)
Date & Time:   August 12, 2014 ,  4:00 PM Location: LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (Different to usual room).

Ultra-Low Frequency (ULF) waves are critical in radial diffusion processes of relativistic electrons in the radiation belts, and their Power Spectral Density as a function of L, together with their mode number, are an integral part of the radial diffusion coefficients and of assimilative models of the radiation belts. Using simultaneous measurements from two GOES […]
