  • Numerical modelling of ultra low frequency waves in Earth's magnetosphere 

    Elsden, Tom (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-24) - Thesis
    Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) waves are a ubiquitous feature of Earth's outer atmosphere, known as the magnetosphere, having been observed on the ground for almost two centuries, and in space over the last 50 years. These waves ...
  • Eruptions and jets in the Sun 

    Lee, Eon Jui (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-23) - Thesis
    Magnetic flux emergence is a fundamental process in the Sun, during which magnetic fields emerge from the solar interior to the surface, to build up active regions and give onset to spectacular dynamic phenomena, such as ...
  • The dynamic topology of the solar corona : mapping the Sun’s three dimensional magnetic skeleton 

    Williams, Benjamin Matthew (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-26) - Thesis
    Observations of the surface of the Sun reveal multi-scaled, mixed magnetic features that carpet the entire solar surface. Not surprisingly, the global magnetic fields extrapolated from these observations are highly ...
  • Modelling chromospheric evaporation in response to coronal heating 

    Johnston, Craig David (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-26) - Thesis
    This thesis presents a new computationally efficient method for modelling the response of the solar corona to the release of energy. During impulsive heating events, the coronal temperature increases which leads to a ...
