Natasha Jeffrey (Northumbria): Solar flares: our laboratory for understanding particle acceleration and transport processes

- Export as iCalendar

Solar flares are efficient particle accelerators and prime laboratories for studying astrophysical acceleration processes, with a high fraction of the released magnetic energy being carried by energetic particles. Over the last decade, our understanding of particle acceleration and transport in flares has been enhanced by new models and available multi-wavelength observations from X-rays to (E)UV to radio. However, many questions remain about how and where energetic particles are accelerated, and how different plasma environments (e.g., collisions, turbulence) affect the transport and observed properties of energetic particles. In this talk, I will review some of these advances and also discuss upcoming X-ray stereoscopic observations with Solar Orbiter/STIX and new X-ray missions at Earth.

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

EPSRC Working with overseas scientists

EPSRC Standard research grant

EPSRC Discipline hopping in ICT

EPSRC Overseas travel grant
