Topics for Bachelor and Master Thesis

Studies are primarily performed using satellite data (image and in-situ) from e.g., NASA/STEREO,

Large-scale solar wind structures - evolution from Sun to interplanetary space:

  • Space Weather effects at inner planets
  • 3D modeling of CMEs (stereoscopic data, triangulation, GCS, Pythea)
  • CME characteristics/propagation in interplanetary space and interaction with the solar wind 
  • Stream interaction regions - sources at the Sun and evolution in interplanetary space
  • Solar activity and Earth's magnetosphere and thermosphere variation 

Space Weather - Research to operation (R2O): 

  • ESA Space Safety Service development 
    • Heliospheric Weather (ESWF, DBEM, STEREO+CH)
    • Ionospheric Weather (SODA)

Observatory Lustbühel Graz (OLG):

  • Solar radio type II and III bursts (e-CALLISTO network and OLG data) related to flares and CME shocks
  • Establishment of a Space Weather Monitoring Station (students are welcome to join that project!) 
  • Radio instrument development 

Outstanding Bachelor- and Master-Theses may be submitted as short article in the local "Observatory Lustbühel Graz Bulletin".
