Open PhD Project

Flows associated with sunspots and pores

Analysing how flows impact sunspot formation

Sunspots are surrounded by outflows of ~300 m/s, which are believed to contribute to their long lifetimes of several weeks (much longer than the convective time scales). Pores are much smaller than sunspots and are surrounded by a different flow pattern. This project is to identify the transition between these two configurations through a statistical study using SDO observations.
