American Astronomical Society.  Solar Physics Division.  Solar Physics 2013 Meeting.


During the 2013 SPD Meeting, many of the presenters provided copies of their presentation files to the meeting organizers, so that we may post them online. This is for the benefit of SPD members who were not able to attend the meeting, mostly for travel-related reasons. The presentation files, and audio recordings of most of the oral presentations, are linked to the full list of abstracts on this page:

The agency presentations from the SPD Town Hall meeting are stored separately at:
