International School of Space Science.
The International School of Space Science (ISSS) began its activity in 1991. The School is organized by the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale (C.I.F.S.) which joins several Italian Universities operating in the field of Space Science and the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF). Since its foundation the ISSS has been directed by prof. U. Villante.
The different spatio-temporal scales of the solar magnetism
11 - 15 April, 2022
The deadline for the application has been extended to December, 5 2021
The School is aimed at providing an in-depth overview of the magnetic phenomena occurring in our star, as well as at presenting some of the most recent tools that can allow to directly tackle the analysis of the problems that are still present in the comprehension of solar magnetic phenomena, through hands-on sessions.
The main topics that will be examined are: the global magnetic field of the Sun and the solar cycle; the small-scale magnetic field: emergence and evolution; the global and local dynamo; the sunspots: processes of formation and evolution and the fine-structure of umbrae and penumbrae; magnetic field instabilities, eruptive events and their impact on Space Weather.
