magnetic and plasma structure of active regions
Joint US/Australian project located at the candidate SKA site in Western Australia (miles and miles from anywhere)
US players are Haystack, Harvard/CfA, MIT
Australian players are CSIRO/ATNF, Curtin University (WA) with a lot of support from Australian (federal) and West Australian (state) governments
Covering the high-frequency end of the LOFAR range, same technique, same science goals.
Using GPU units to do their data processing!
US project involving Naval Research Laboratory, U. New Mexico, Los Alamos, Virginia Tech, U. Texas, NRAO, AFRL, …
LOFAR’s first solar image
ALMA can observe the Sun! Will be wonderful for flares (but small FOV) and chromosphere studies IF we can get observing time …
