Numerical modelling of the solar atmosphere

Project Description

The Sun provides support for life on Earth, and has a huge impact on the life of human civilization. Solar activity, revealing itself as coronal mass ejections and flares reaching the terrestrial magnetosphere, can damage power lines, disrupt communications and navigation systems. My aim is to build a complete, realistic model of solar activity on different scales within magnetically interconnected solar interior, atmosphere and corona. Using involved numerical modelling, I will provide a bridge between basic solar plasma and radiation theories and observations, thus giving a better understanding of physical processes that originate solar activity, and, ultimately, developing methods and techniques to predict the solar activity processes.
