Solar Orbiter: Studies of the Origins and Dynamics of the Solar Wind Charged Particle Populations

UCL/MSSL is the Principal Investigator (PI) Institute on an international consortium providing the Solar Wind Analyser suite (SWA) of instruments for the ESA Solar Orbiter mission.  Using 3 scientific sensors, SWA is able to sample electron, proton, alpha particle and heavy ion populations at various distances down to 0.28 AU from the Sun (i.e. Read more

Identification and classification of coherent flow structures in the plasma of the Sun’s photosphere

The Sun is a star with a cyclic magnetic activity that can impact all the solar system. Thus, the solar magnetic field can interact with the Earth's magnetic field, permitting the entrance of energetic particles in the upper atmosphere, affecting technological devices, telecommunications and human health.

Sunlight and skin type: exploring the vitamin D status of the black-skinned population in UK

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Vitamin D is necessary for calcium homeostasis, and thus a healthy musculoskeletal system. It is also implicated in contributing to defences against a range of other ailments including autoimmune diseases, respiratory tract infections and cancers. Read more

Observing the Sun as a star

The Sun is the only star we know for sure has no orbiting planets in the data - since we can remove them perfectly. That makes it the perfect star to study and eventually aid the search for small planets orbiting other stars. Read more

Observations and methods to characterise small planets around Sun-like stars

Finding and characterising planets like Earth are hindered by variable signals from the star itself. Especially in radial velocity data, essential to measure a planet's mass, these signals are often larger than the planet signals. Read more

Biomarker development for intervention studies in aging

Human longevity has increased through improved nutrition, sanitation and healthcare in the last century. Research for extending the human lifespan has recently sped up and the first drug candidates have entered clinical trials. Read more

Asteroseismic probes of stellar activity cycles

Using data from the NASA Kepler and TESS missions, this project will use subtle changes to the properties of stellar oscillations to explore the stellar cycle properties of Sun-like stars and more evolved sub-giants. Read more
