Modeling Stellar Activity-rotation Relations in Unsaturated Cool Stars
We apply a surface flux transport model developed for the Sun to reconstruct the stellar activity-rotation relationship, L X /L bol versus Ro, observed for unsaturated cool stars (Rossby numbers Ro ≳


Geomagnetic Field Disturbances Caused by Heliospheric Current Sheet Crossings
The heliospheric current sheet (HCS) is modified by the solar activity. HCS is highly inclined during solar maximum and almost confined with the solar equatorial plane during solar minimum. Close to
Magnetism, dynamo action and the solar-stellar connection
Observations and theory of magnetism in the Sun and other stars are reviewed, with a partial focus on the “Solar-stellar connection”: ways in which studies of other stars have influenced the authors' understanding of theSun and vice versa.
Asteroseismology and Exoplanets: Listening to the Stars and Searching for New Worlds
This book presents the proceedings of the IVth Azores International Advanced School in Space Sciences entitled "Asteroseismology and Exoplanets: Listening to the Stars and Searching for New Worlds",
Long-term variations of the flow direction and angular momentum of the solar wind observed by Helios
The flow directions of solar wind protons were measured in situ by the Helios spacecraft. A long-term average of the velocity shows a systematic drift in the latitudinal flow angle of about +1 north
Torsional oscillation patterns in photospheric magnetic features
We analyzed 689 high-resolution magnetograms taken daily with the NSO Vacuum Telescope on Kitt Peak from 1975 to 1991. Motions in longitude on the solar surface are determined by a one-dimensional
Simulations of the Photospheric Magnetic Activity and Outer Atmospheric Radiative Losses of Cool Stars Based on Characteristics of the Solar Magnetic Field
The observed disk-integrated radiative losses from the outer atmospheres of stars with convective envelopes are determined by the distribution of magnetic field over their surfaces. Earlier modeling
Properties and emergence patterns of bipolar active regions
Short-term variations in the emergence frequency of regions do not necessarily occur simultaneously for regions of all sizes, implying that the size distribution is variable on time scales of less than six rotations.
Asterospheric Magnetic Fields and Winds of Cool Stars
This study addresses the winds and magnetic fields in the inner asterospheres of Sun-like magnetically active stars by combining empirical relationships between rotation rate and mass loss,
The Properties of Small Magnetic Regions on the Solar Surface and the Implications for the Solar Dynamo(s)
We find that bipolar active regions that emerge onto the Sun's surface are part of a smoothly decreasing frequency distribution that spans almost 4 orders of magnitude in flux and 8 orders of
