Trinity College (Dublin. Abstract. Mode of access: Internet Topics: Meteorology. Donna did her PhD at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies working on the early stages of star formation and considered the influence of magnetic fields on the evolution of young stellar systems.

She then took up a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK where she worked on the influence of massive. He also fabricated twenty sets of magnetometers for Professor Humphrey Lloyd’s (Trinity College, Dublin) efforts to establish a network of magnetic observatories throughout the British Empire.

These were to further scientific understanding of geo-magnetism and, eventually, thirty-three observatories were set-up throughout the world on the same model as the magnetic observatory Author: Adrian Kirwan.

The answer to this problem lies in the complex magnetic field which is tightly woven within the atmosphere of Sun. Over the last few decades, numerous observatories in space and on the ground, have provided a range of explanations for the origins of this coronal heating. Two competing physical mechanisms are generally accepted.

Consequently, it is difficult to observe and measure the magnetic field. One technique that allow us to measure the magnetic field is the microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (MASER).

In this project we measured the magnetic field in the line of sight of EGO G+ by using EVN observations of GHz Hydroxyl masers.

This leads to magnetic field lines, pointing from pole to pole, to become twisted over time leading to very strong localised fields and is the cause of dark regions on the Sun known as sunspots.› Radio Diagnostics of electron acceleration sites during the eruption of a flux rope in the solar corona - Eoin Carley, Trinity College Dublin [Dublin], Laboratoire d'études spatiales et d'instrumentation en astrophysique - › LOFAR observations of the quiet solar corona - Christian Vocks, Leibniz-Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam.
