*Title:* Solar FLares and Space Weather
*Speaker:* Dr Lucia Kleint
*Abstract:* Eruptions on the Sun, called solar flares, are extremely
powerful. Their violent nature and influence on Earth were realized in 1859
when English astronomer R. Carrington suddenly saw an unexpected
brightening on the Sun. Lasting only a few minutes on the Sun, the event
was followed by intense space weather with auroras seen as far south as
Hawaii, and by failures of telegraph systems, whose operators suffered from
electric shocks.
Research in flare physics has determined that the energy stored in the
solar magnetic field is powering the eruptions. Particles accelerated
during magnetic reconnection events precipitate into interplanetary space,
but also towards the solar surface where they cause many observable
phenomena, such as heating, mass motions, and emission in the whole
electromagnetic spectrum. Large solar eruptions are the main causes of
severe space weather events, which can affect satellites and communication.
In this presentation, I will give a closer look on the origins of space
weather and the current research on solar flares.
