The ST Division considers all aspects of solar and heliospheric physics,
specifically the solar-terrestrial connection. It covers the physical
processes occurring on the Sun, in the solar wind, as well as in Earth's
magnetosphere and ionosphere. Solar activity (e.g. coronal mass
ejections, solar flares, solar energetic particle events) and the
response of the near-Earth space environment to these solar phenomena
are studied on a wide-range of temporal and spatial scales. Data
analysis and interpretation of space-borne and ground-based data, as
well as theoretical studies and different modeling techniques are used
to better our understanding of how our local star defines the
neighborhood that we live in.
The 2019 Hannes Alfvén Medal is awarded to
Daniel N. Baker for outstanding, multi-faceted contributions to the near-Earth space plasma environment research and predictions, Earth’s radiation belt environment monitoring, and planetary space plasma studies.
- Julius Bartels Medal
The 2019 Julius Bartels Medal is awarded to
Masatoshi Yamauchi for extraordinary work in space physics and planetary science.
- Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Awards
The 2019 Division Outstanding Early Career Scientists Awards is awarded to
Chao Xiong for outstanding research on space weather effects on the thermosphere and ionosphere.
- Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards
The 2019 Outstanding Student Poster and PICO (OSPP) Awards is awarded to
Alexander Lukin Night-side magnetopause: simultaneous observations of ARTEMIS and MMS

Hello! My name is Erika Palmerio and I am a newly qualified Dr in space physics from the University of Helsinki, Finland. In this blog post I will talk about my PhD research and my future career plans. The title of my PhD dissertation is “Magnetic structure and geoeffectiveness of coronal mass ejections”. Coronal mass ejections (or CMEs) are huge and spectacular clouds of magnetic field and plasma that regularly erupt from the Sun and travel throughout the heliosphere (that …
