Week 4 Log

Monday, June 30, 2014 - Thursday, July 3, 2014

This week I began the detections of the active regions. There were some final issues to work through before detections began: the code failed when used on a magnetogram with no positive or negative regions, and when dealing with large region files the code went slowly so a buffer had to be developed. Once these changes were implemented I worked through the detections up to 1999 from the beginning of the SOHO/MDI mission in 1996.

There were also lectures on eruptions in the Sun (Jiong Qiu) and the solar wind (Dana Longcope), as well as a seminar given by Dr. Silvina Guidoni.
