ReSoLVE - Centre of Excellence in Research on Solar Long-term Variability and Effects


Team leaders:

  • HELIOS team, Professor Kalevi Mursula, University of Oulu
  • ENERGETIC team, Doctor Timo Asikainen, University of Oulu

ReSoLVE Centre of Excellence is an integrated research consortium of three research teams located in Oulu and two in Helsinki. ReSoLVE studies the long-term (centennial) magnetic evolution of the Sun, which depicts a dramatic increase in the 20th century and a recent rapid decline, and the effects of this variability to the space around the Sun and to the near-Earth environment, focusing on the long-term evolution of solar poloidal magnetic fields and their role in varying the level of electromagnetic disturbances and the flux of energetic particles in the near-Earth space.
