Exploring the solar atmosphere with the WISPR instrument of the Parker Solar Probe mission
Speaker Speaker: Dott. Giuseppe Nisticò
Affiliato Affiliato: Institut für Astrophysik, Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen, 37077, Germania
Data Evento Mercoledì 17 Aprile , alle ore 15.30 - Aula CF2, Cubo 32C
The Wide-field Imager for Parker Solar Probe (WISPR) provides unprecedented white-light images of the solar corona and inner heliosphere from unconventional viewpoints thanks to the close perihelion transits of Parker Solar Probe. WISPR images coronal structures at high spatial and time resolutions, but the data analysis needs to consider the continuous change of the observation’s plane-of-sky and hence of the projection due to PSP’s fast orbital speed and high orbital eccentricity. Therefore, it is important to understand how these factors affect the images. Here, we present an analysis of simulated WISPR images and discuss how WISPR data can be analysed to study the physical conditions of the corona and the near-Sun environment.
