Scientific Discovery and Innovation

HAO conducts a comprehensive program of solar-terrestrial physics. This program encompasses the physics of the Sun, Heliosphere, and Geospace to that of the Earth’s Magnetosphere, Ionosphere, Thermosphere, and upper atmosphere. Research in these areas areas is pursued using a combination of state-of-the-art numerical models, theoretical, and observational efforts that study the response of the terrestrial system to electro-magnetic, particulate, and impulsive phenomena.

The following are some of our scientific highlights from fiscal year 2016.
