cd06 - Solar Magnetic Field Measurements - methods, uses, and future capabilities

Location: Auditorium C

Conveners: Thomas Berger (University of Colorado at Boulder) and Valentin Martinez-Pillet (National Solar Observatory)

Session chairs: to be confirmed

The solar magnetic field is the ultimate "boundary condition" for all models of space weather generated by solar activity. In this session, we will discuss the current methods for both ground-based and space-based measurements of the solar magnetic field, along with the theory of remote measurement and calibration of solar magnetic fields. Talks will also be solicited on current and future use of solar magnetograms in solar wind, CME, and other space weather predictive models. Finally, talks on future instrumentation and/or missions to obtain solar magnetic field data in the photosphere, chromosphere, or corona will explore the future of the field.

Thursday 28 October – 15:30 - 16:30 (BST)
