The activities of the Space Physics Research Group of ISARS
focus on solar and heliospheric physics, interplanetary disturbances,
magnetospheric dynamic processes and impacts on the terrestrial
atmosphere. The Group is particularly
active in investigations of:
- Solar atmosphere dynamics
- Charged particle acceleration mechanisms
- Space magnetic storms and space weather
- Magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling
- Storm-time ring current dynamics
- Particle propagation in Coronal Mass Ejections
- Propagation channels in Corotating Interaction Regions
Such investigations are achieved by means of:
a) Data processing, analysis and interpretation of spacecraft
data, both from current and from
b) Development of modelling software for the implementation
of mission objectives.
c) Computer simulations of basic physical processes.
Researchers of ISARS have been participating in several space
missions under the Co-Investigator or Group Member status.
Active co-operation exists with a number of research institutes
in Europe and USA. A clear objective and plan for future endeavour
of the Space Physics Research Group is also the detailed investigation
and interpretation of dynamic chains of events observed at
the Sun, interplanetary space, magnetosphere and terrestrial
atmosphere and their cause-and-effect relationship.
