The WaLSA Team currently consists of 37 members, spanning 27 research institutes from 13 countries, with diverse expertise in the field of wave activity in the lower solar atmosphere.
The 12 core members, from 8 countries, are listed below (in alphabetical order). The team members hold a wealth of experience in the handling, preparation, and exploitation of high-resolution data sequences from modern ground-based and space/balloon-borne solar observatories, as well as in theory and simulations, spectropolarimetric signatures, and radiative-transfer processes. See the team's Scientific Rationale for greater details.
Scientist at Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Germany, and affiliated researcher at RoCS (Norway). His studies concern how the magnetic fields structure dynamics of the Sun's atmosphere, particularly from wave activity.
Associate members are equally involved in the research conducted by the WaLSA Team. The associate members listed below (in alphabetical order) are the first of many envisaged. New associates are expected to join the team over time.
Affiliate members are scientists or graduate students with an interest in the WaLSA-related activities. The affiliate members may contribute to the research lead by the core and associate members, or collaborate with the WaLSA Team on their own science projects.

PhD student; His research interests are in the seismology of the solar atmosphere and multi-height doppler data to analyze acoustic wave propagation. He is also interested in data analysis and has worked on usage statistics for the Helioviewer Project.
PhD researcher at the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE). His main research focus is on sunspot waves at high resolution from SST observations.
