Studium Generale lecture Northern Lights

During the lunchbreak of Monday May 8, Noora Partamies will give a Studium Generale lecture on the Northern Lights in the Blue Hall in Auditorium. Noora explains how the Northern Lights occur, what they are, what their effects are, and why they are important to study. The atmospheres of the polar regions are constantly bombarded by energetic electrons, which cause the aurora borealis, and sometimes by more energetic protons from solar eruptions. Behind the scenes, these particles have much longer-lasting effects than just the emission of light. We think that this SG lecture could fit the interest of Physics students well!
