Solar Magnetic Fields Before and During Eruptions: Perspectives with the Largest Telescope to observe the Sun (DKIST)
Space weather is largely caused by the activity of our Sun. Invisible yet powerful magnetic fields, created within the Sun, determine when and where the next solar eruption will happen. Large solar storms can put our technological society at risk. In this talk, CU Boulder and National Solar Observatory professor, Maria Kazachenko will discuss how advances in solar observations and data-driven models allow scientists to understand the Sun in a lot more detail than ever before.
