Observations of Sunspots

Author: Alan Title (Stanford Lockheed Institute for Space Research)

Abstract

New and old techniques allow us to observe sunspots in a range of wavelengths, to determine the associated flow systems at a range of heights, to detect oscillations and waves and to determine the strength and angular distributions of their magnetic fields. This lecture will provide a selection of examples of processes associated with the sunspot phenomena. But rather that providing a comprehensive review, the goal of the talk is to raise questions
