How is the Earth coupled to space?
The Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS ) is a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (SFF) whose primary objective is to try to understand the Earth’s relationship to space. To this end, BCSS has identified four areas of research:
Dynamics of the asymmetric geospace:
When and why are the auroras in the two hemispheres asymmetric?
What are the important temporal and spatial scales of geospace dynamics?
Theory and modeling:
How does magnetic reconnection work?
What controls large-scale magnetospheric dynamics?
What are the effects of particle precipitation on the atmospheric system?
Hard radiation from thunderstorms:
What is the role of energetic particles from thunderstorms on geospace?
