Michael Knoelker Symposium: From Solar Physics to Exoplanets

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 to Friday, February 28, 2020 (main seminar room at NCAR's Mesa Lab)

This meeting celebrates Michael Knoelker’s original work on solar and stellar magnetism and seismology, as well as his major contributions to the High Altitude Observatory during his 15-year directorship, and his recent appointment to Senior Scientist Emeritus. Michael started his career with ground breaking work on magnetic flux concentrations in the solar photosphere. Michael Knoelker is known for his mentoring of young scientists, his collaborations on high-altitude, long-duration, balloon programs and his role as a Co-PI on the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST).

This symposium will focus on recent developments and future directions in solar physics, the solar-stellar connection, exoplanets and modeling of exoplanet atmospheres.
