Affiliate Membership
21 February 2019

The WaLSA Team introduces Affiliate Membership to those with an interest in its 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. The Affiliate Membership offers a wide range of opportunities in terms of WaLSA-related science collaboration with the core and associate members: an international platform to discuss a focused science target, a framework to connect researchers with a common interest, and a space to produce original science related to wave activities in the solar atmosphere.
Get in Touch if you want to become an affiliate member of the WaLSA Team.

The WaLSA Team just ended its one-week kickoff meeting at the University of Oslo, Norway.


The first meeting of the WaLSA Team took place at the University of Oslo (Oslo, Norway), between 7-11 January 2019, as a "Rosseland International Team". The entirely interactive meeting was aimed at improving scientific knowledge and stumulating new research objectives under the proposed "umbrella topics" in the field of MHD waves in the lower solar atmosphere. From the challenges raised during the meeting, several new (original) science projects were created.

New Associate Members
30 November 2018

The WaLSA Team welcomes its first four associate members joing the team.


The associate members are equally involved in the research conducted by the WaLSA Team. The four associate members (Tony Arber, Andrés Asensio Ramos, Robert Cameron, and Vasco Henriques) are the first of many envisaged. New associates are expected to join the team in the near future.
