Heliophysics Summer School 2010
July 28 - August 04, Boulder, CO

Space Storms

Using Textbooks I & II, the 2010 school developed problem sets and labs in conjunction with individual lectures. The problem sets and labs were developed as auxiliary material for the textbooks.

NASA Living with a Star sponsors the Heliophysics Summer Schools.   The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs office administers the schools for NASA.  This series of summer schools, commencing in 2007, helps graduate students and scientists learn and chapstartdevelop the science of heliophysics as a broad, coherent discipline that reaches in space from the Earth's troposphere to the depths of the Sun, and in time from the formation of the solar system to the distant future.

The first three schools produced textbooks for use at universities worldwide. The continuation of the school program each summer will teach new generations of students and develop the complementary materials that support teaching of heliophysics at both graduate and undergraduate levels.

The Summer School has two principal aims:

  1. Deepen the appreciation of the basic science of heliophysics for a select group of students, as teachers take them through highly interactive seminars and hands-on working groups, and
  2. Expand the newly-published textbook series to include labs, problem sets, and background material, from which heliophysics may be taught at universities worldwide.
Approximately 30 students are selected through a competitive process organized by UCAR VSP. The school lasts for seven days, and each participant receives travel support for air travel, lodging and per diem costs.
