Public Engagement

An important source of impact from the WaLSA Team will be in the form of public outreach activities. The individual team members are already engaged with such activities, including lectures at various public events and schools, and will continue to do so throughout the coming years. The WaLSA Team also aims at promoting its research activities, including new science findings, as they are made through press releases, interviews with the media, and via social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. A summary of these activities, as well as our science in simple, illustrative terms are being presented on this page.

Propagating Spectropolarimetric Disturbances in a Large Sunspot
The Astrophysical Journal, 2018, 869, 100

Marco Stangalini of INAF (and of the WaLSA Team) explains about propagation of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves in the atmosphere of one of the largest sunspots emerged onto the Sun's surface over the past 20 years. This work is a result of an international collaboration, including four members of the WaLSA Team.
