  1. This paper reviews recent advances and current debates in modeling the solar cycle as a hydromagnetic dynamo process. Emphasis is placed on (relatively) simple dynamo models that are nonetheless detailed enough to be comparable to solar cycle…
  2. The Sun's outer atmosphere, or corona, is heated to millions of degrees, considerably hotter than its surface or photosphere. Explanations for this enigma typically invoke the deposition in the corona of nonthermal energy generated by…
  3. We use the Michelson Doppler Imager and TRACE observations of photospheric magnetic and velocity fields in NOAA 10759 to build a three-dimensional coronal magnetic field model. The most dramatic feature of this active region is the 34 rotation of…
  4. We present the first Solar Dynamics Observatory Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) observations of a global coronal EUV disturbance (so-called "EIT wave") revealed in unprecedented detail. The disturbance observed on 2010 April 8 exhibits two…
  5. Observations of very quiet Sun using the Solar Optical Telescope/Spectro-Polarimeter (SOT/SP) aboard the Hinode spacecraft reveal that the quiet internetwork regions are pervaded by horizontal magnetic flux. The spatial average horizontal apparent…
  6. We review the current status of local helioseismology, covering both theoretical and observational results. After a brief introduction to solar oscillations and wave propagation through inhomogeneous media, we describe the main techniques of local…
  7. We have made high resolution observations of the Sun in which we identify individual sunquakes and see power from these seismic events being pumped into the resonant modes of vibration of the Sun. A typical event lasts about five minutes. We…
  8. We developed numerical codes designed for automated analysis of SDO/AIA im- age datasets in the six coronal filters, including: i) coalignment test between different wave- lengths with measurements of the altitude of the EUV-absorbing chromosphere,…
  9. A new method for the automated detection of coronal holes and filaments on the solar disk is presented. The starting point is coronal images taken by the Extreme Ultraviolet Telescope on the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO/EIT) in the Fe…
  10. Relying purely on solar photospheric magnetic field measurements that\ncover most of solar cycle 23 (1996-2005), we calculate the total\nrelative magnetic helicity injected into the solar atmosphere, and\neventually shed into the heliosphere, over…
