Dr. George Doschek, head of the Solar Terrestrial Relationships Branch at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and Dr. Russell Howard, astrophysicist at NRL, join us for a discussion of solar physics research. Solar events such as flares and coronal mass ejections have potentially damaging effects on such diverse things as space-based operations, communication and navigation systems, and electrical power grids. The goal of the solar physics research program at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is to develop a fundamental physical understanding of varying solar phenomena, the radiative and particulate emissions associated with the phenomena, and the behavior of the heliosphere, and the ionospheric and thermospheric components of the Earth's atmosphere in response to the phenomena.The appearance of advertising on this Web site, does not constitute endorsement by the Department of Defense, of the products or services advertised on this site.
