How is the Earth coupled to space?
The Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS ) is a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (SFF) whose primary objective is to try to understand the Earth’s relationship to space. To this end, BCSS has identified three areas of research:
Dynamics of the asymmetric geospace:
When and why are the auroras in the two hemispheres asymmetric?
What are the important temporal and spatial scales of geospace dynamics?
What are the effects of particle precipitation on the atmospheric system?
Hard radiation from thunderstorms:
What is the role of energetic particles from thunderstorms on geospace?
