Dr Lucie Green on solar activity at ASE Annual Conference

SOLAR activity has been hitting the headlines lately but why should we care about it?

Dr Lucie Green will answer this question at the ASE Annual Conference in Liverpool in January in her lecture on the highs and lows of solar activity.

The solar researcher based at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London's Department of Space and Climate Physics will give this year’s John Lewis Lecture.

Her research area is the study of activity in the atmosphere of our nearest star, the Sun. In particular, she is interested in understanding how the Sun ejects huge clouds of magnetic field and hot gases into the solar system.

She currently holds a Leverhulme Fellowship and was the 2009 recipient of the Kohn Award for excellence in public engagement with science. As well as her solar physics research, Lucie also works in TV and radio, including being the only female presenter on the Sky at Night programme.

Hear Lucie’s John Lewis Lecture: The highs and lows of solar activity and why we should care on Friday 6 January from 11.30 – 12.30 in the Chadwick Lecture Theatre of the Chadwick Building.
