Organisation Profile

The space physics research group studies solar-terrestrial physics and space weather. The research group develops world leading coronal, heliospheric and magnetospheric simulations and utilize observations from a number of ESA and NASA spacecraft.

The group is part of Kumpula Space Centre, having a Finnish Centre of Excellence and two active ERC projects. The group´s research includes:

  • Solar wind interactions with the Earth’s magnetosphere
  • Initiation and evolution of coronal mass ejections
  • Physics and dynamics of the Van Allen radiation belts surrounding the Earth
  • Reconnection, waves, instabilities and shocks in the near-Earth environment and in the solar wind

International and National Collaboration Publications and projects within past five years.
