  • Speaker: Susan Lepri (U-M Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences)
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 02/15/2014
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description:

    The Sun’s hot, gaseous corona continuously expands at supersonic speeds, filling the solar system with magnetized plasma. Through the solar wind and the plasma carried along with it, the Sun touches and interacts with each of the planets and other bodies in the solar system. We will discuss how the solar wind is born and how it influences objects in the solar system.

    Detailed Information
    All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
