UHM Physics Department Colloquia

Prof. Jeff Kuhn on "How the Sun Spins"

Thursday, 13 April 2017 from to (Pacific/Honolulu)
at Watanabe Hall ( 112 )
The physics of rotating, compressible, turbulent fluids is so complicated that interesting unexplained mysteries still exist here, even with the benefit of our most powerful numerical models. This talk describes where we are with this problem for the Sun, and explains some new physics, discovered only recently, that appears to solve some of the Solar rotation mystery.
