Open PhD Project

Subsurface Flows associated with emerging Solar Active Regions

The physical process of active region evolution is not known. This project will help to constrain the models of formation, evolution and decay.

The purpose of this project is to study the life cycle of solar active regions from before their emergence into the photosphere through their eventual decay.  The project will take advantage of existing high-quality observations from the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) instrument on board the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite of more than one hundred emerging active regions.

The project requires a background in either in astrophysics, physics, scientific computing, or applied mathematics.
