Plasma and Magnetism – 25th January 2001

Dr. Chris Owen gave a talk entitled The Solar-Terrestrial Connection in which he described the interaction of plasma and magnetic fields. His talk was accompanied by illustrations including several animation sequences of images from spacecraft such as Soho and Polar, showing solar prominences, flares and coronal mass ejections and auroral activity in the Earth’s ionosphere. He concluded his talk with a brief description of parts of the Cluster II mission.
