EPS Distinguished Lecture: Professor Paul Cannon

Date
06/11/2014
Location:
Gisbert Kapp Building (G8)
Description
Minor explosive eruptions of energy from the Sun that cause small solar storms on Earth are relatively common events. In contrast, extremely large events (superstorms) only occur very occasionally – perhaps once every century or two. Since the start of the space age there has been no true solar-superstorm but there have been a number of large storms, some of which have caused major technological and economic damage.
