Solar Physics Webinar of Global Reach—SolFER Colloquium

The Solar Physics Webinar of Global Reach (SPW-GR) invites the entire solar physics community to participate. The target audience is active researchers in all areas of Solar Physics including graduate students. The Webinar uses the Cisco Webex service available at NJIT and is coordinated by Dr. Gregory Fleishman. To connect use the webex meeting link or meeting #924 797 400. See details here.

Over the first two years, April 2018—April 2020, the Webinar ran on a monthly schedule starting Wednesday, 2018 April 18, and then each fourth Wednesday that followed.

As of May 2020, the series has change its status and become the regular on-line Colloquium of the DRIVE Science Center “Solar Flare Energy Release (SolFER).” To better serve the SolFER needs, the dates and time of the webinar have been adjusted to be the third Friday of each month at 1 pm EDT/EST. The corresponding UT time (either 17 or 18 UT) will be adjusted twice a year according to the US daylight saving time transitions. The first SolFER Colloquium talk is scheduled for May 15 2020. The format of the events remain the same The SolFER Colloquium is entirely open for the community (no preregistration or invitation is needed).
