STUDENT OPPORTUNITY: Heliphysics Summer School 2008
July 28 – August 2, 2008, Boulder, Colorado
From: George Sisco

The second of a three-year NASA-sponsored Heliophysics Summer School will be
hosted by UCAR in Boulder, CO, 28 July through 2 August 2008. The summer
school is sponsored by NASA’s Living With a Star (LWS) program. It has three
principal goals: 1) To deepen the appreciation of the basic science of
heliophysics for a select group of students as teachers take them through
highly interactive seminars and hands-on working groups and lab exercises, 2)
To analyze new measurements with the goal of identifying global processes and
drivers of the Sun-heliosphere system outward to the heliopause, and the
responses of planetary magnetospheres, ionospheres and atmospheres, and 3) To
produce a series of textbooks from which heliophysics may be taught at
universities worldwide. The three-year program comprises three thematic
clusters that together cover the scientific basis of the physical processes
that play a role in coupling the Sun’s interior to the planetary environments
and atmospheres through the vast heliosphere.
