Collaborations

Advanced Heliophysics is always looking for collaborators in the following research fields:
  • Global magnetic field of the solar corona
  • Origin of fast and slow solar wind
  • Triggering mechanism of coronal mass ejections
  • Formation, evolution, and properties of solar filaments and prominences
  • Space weather and geo-effectiveness of ICMEs

UCLA Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences

UCLA Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences

We collaborate with the UCLA Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences in solar wind formation and global coronal magnetic structure modeling.

The Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences at UCLA is on a mission to understand and protect our home in the Universe. We seek to understand how planets like ours form and evolve, how life on our planet developed, and whether life exists elsewhere. We study the physical and chemical conditions that prevailed 4.6 billion years ago when the planets formed, the processes that shape planetary bodies, and interactions with the space environment. Using data from the lab, field, spacecraft, and telescopes, we study a wide range of important questions about the Earth, the Solar System, and beyond. We also characterize natural hazards so that we can better protect humanity from earthquakes, tsunamis, space weather, and asteroid impacts. I invite you to explore our web site to find out about the impressive research conducted by our students, researchers, and faculty.

Primary collaborators:

  • Prof. Marco Velli
  • Franco Rappazzo, Ph.D.

Predictive Science Inc.

Predictive Science Inc.

We collaborate with Predictive Science Inc. in studying the origin of sympathetic coronal mass ejections.

Founded by Drs. Jon A. Linker, Zoran Mikić and Pete Riley in 2008, Predictive Science is an employee-owned company that delivers state-of-the-art scientific solutions. In addition to the scientists, we currently have a software/systems engineer, an office manager, an administrative assistant, and student interns. Our research programs focus on the development and applications of sophisticated magnetohydrodynamic models of the Sun’s corona and heliosphere, in an effort to answer fundamental scientific questions about the physics of the Sun. Our long-term goal is to transition our models into operational codes that are capable of predicting space weather conditions with several days of advance warning. Our programs support a number of NASA missions, including Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), and are performed under the auspices of NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Air Force Office of Sponsored Research (AFOSR).

Primary collaborators:

  • Tibor Török, Ph.D.
  • Viacheslav Titov, Ph.D.
  • Roberto Lionello, Ph.D.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

We collaborate with JPL in analyzing non-radial propagation of coronal mass ejections, primarily using observations from STEREO and SDO.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a unique national research facility that carries out robotic space and Earth science missions. JPL helped open the Space Age by developing America’s first Earth-orbiting science satellite, creating the first successful interplanetary spacecraft, and sending robotic missions to study all the planets in the solar system as well as asteroids, comets and Earth’s moon. In addition to its missions, JPL developed and manages NASA’s Deep Space Network, a worldwide system of antennas that communicates with interplanetary spacecraft.

JPL is a federally funded research and development center managed for NASA by Caltech. From the long history of leaders drawn from the university’s faculty to joint programs and appointments, JPL’s intellectual environment and identity are profoundly shaped by its role as part of Caltech.

Today JPL continues its world-leading innovation, implementing programs in planetary exploration, Earth science, space-based astronomy and technology development, while applying its capabilities to technical and scientific problems of national significance. JPL technology developed to enable new missions is also applied on Earth to benefit our everyday lives.

Royal Observatory of Belgium

Royal Observatory of Belgium

We collaborate with ROB in analyzing data from PROBA2.

The mission of the “OD Solar Physics and Space Weather” is to advance knowledge on the Sun and its influence on the solar system, through research and observations. We provide this knowledge and expertise to the scientific community, to the society, the government and the industry through operational services and dissemination at both the national and the international level.

The goal of our research activities is to increase our understanding of the Sun and its influence on the solar system. The specific topics that we aim to research are inspired by our own operational activities, by our heritage in some sub disciplines and -last but not least- by a passion for understanding the Sun and its effects at a more fundamental level.

The goal of our observational activities is, through deep involvement in relevant instruments in space and on the ground, to have a full understanding of the complete data acquisition and calibration process. Our observational activities span the full range from instrumentation technology to data collection and analysis. A close internal collaboration ensures that our research and/or operations benefit directly and intensely from these observational activities. Our ambitions include developing advanced technologies, operating our own facilities and establishing stable infrastructures supporting long-term solar monitoring and standards.

The goal of our operational services is to have an active, leading role in European space weather services and to provide state-of-the-art data services. We want to continuously improve and monitor the accuracy/quality of our space weather predictions and solar indices, primarily the international sunspot index. We want to provide high level space weather reports and solar activity predictions to industry and to the wider community. The goal of our data services is to produce, archive and distribute our own data and indices through state-of-the-art processing pipelines, data bases and interfaces.

The goal of our dissemination activities is to be the primary national reference and source of information on the Sun, solar activity and space weather for all Belgian user communities (general public, schools, industry, authorities and funding agency). At the international level, we want to contribute to dissemination programs.

International Space Science Institute

The International Space Science Institute

Dr. Panasenco is a member of the ISSI International Team “Solving the Prominence Paradox.” Team Leader: Nicolas Labrosse, Ph.D. (Univ. of Glasgow, UK).

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) is an Institute of Advanced Study where scientists from all over the world meet in a multi- and interdisciplinary setting to reach out for new scientific horizons. The main function is to contribute to the achievement of a deeper understanding of the results from different space missions, ground based observations and laboratory experiments, and adding value to those results through multidisciplinary research in the framework of International Teams, Workshops, Working Groups, Forums or as individual Visiting Scientists. The program of ISSI covers a wide spectrum of disciplines including the physics of the solar system and planetary sciences to astrophysics and cosmology, and from Earth sciences to astrobiology.
