PhD in Space Weather and Solar-Terrestrial Physics - The dynamics of coronal mass ejections between the Sun and the Earth

The solar wind is a continuous outflow of charged particles and magnetic field from the Sun’s upper atmosphere. Variability in the solar wind conditions leads to space weather, which can adversely affect technological infrastructures, such as power grids and telecommunications networks, as well as the health of humans in space and on high-altitude flights.
