Welcome to the Solar Section within the Space Exploration Sector’s Space Research Group. This is the central repository for all information related to Solar Physics at JHUAPL.
The Solar Section research aims to understand solar activity through novel instrument development, advanced modeling, and innovative data analysis methods. To this end, the Section conducts cutting-edge research in almost every area of solar physics, from high-resolution magnetic field measurements to spectroscopy of the upper atmosphere to the physics of Coronal Mass Ejections and other components of the inner heliosphere (jet, plumes, solar energetic particles, comets). The Section has a strong focus on understanding the drivers of Space Weather and on translating research results to actionable operational products. The Section members possess considerable experience in instrument development, systems engineering, project management, modeling, and advanced image processing techniques and data analytics. The Section scientists play science leadership roles in several ongoing and future space missions, including STEREO, Solar Probe Plus (SPP), and Solar Orbiter.
