Giuseppe Nistico (Institut für Astrophysik, University of Goettingen): 'Observations of comets in the inner heliosphere'

- Export as iCalendar
Location: PS128

Abstract: In my talk, I will present the complex interaction of comets with the heliospheric environment. As comets approach their perihelium, a tail of dust and plasma is formed from their nucleus. This interacts with the local solar wind exhibiting an oscillatory dynamics, which is analogous to the physics of an object immersed in a turbulent flow. The parameters of the tail oscillations depend on the size of the comet nucleus and the local temporal/spatial variations of the solar wind. Exploiting recent observations of comets from space probes, we quantify these parameters and relate them to the local conditions of the interplanetary medium.

UKRI Deadlines

Due to the implementation of a new UKRI funding system (TFS) there will be a fixed quarterly deadlines for some grants which would previously have been on open calls, this is to allow necessary system amendments and updates.

The first deadline after implementation will be 28th September 2023 and applies to those calls listed below:

EPSRC New Investigator Award

EPSRC Network Grant

EPSRC Post Doctoral Fellowship

EPSRC Open Fellowship

EPSRC Open Plus Fellowship
