This year's theme: 'Explosive Space Weather Events and their Impacts'

NASA’s Living with a Star Heliophysics Summer School

July 14 - 21, 2020

Boulder, CO

Application Deadline: February 21, 2020

Approximately 35 students will be selected through a competitive process organized by the UCAR Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science. The school lasts for eight days, and each participant receives full travel support for airline tickets, lodging and per diem costs.

From the official announcement:

The 2020 Summer School will focus on the foundations of Heliophysics with particular focus on transient energetic events such as solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and geomagnetic storms. The lecture series will include a core set of lectures covering the fundamentals of heliophysics and lectures devoted to the physics underlying explosive events. Additional lectures will cover the impacts these events have on life and technology, how these effects might be mitigated, and how the events might be forecast. The lectures will be supplemented with hands-on laboratory exercises that explore the fundamentals Sun-Earth system. Both lectures and laboratories will draw on a set of 5 textbooks developed over previous years of the summer school.
