Plasma & Space Physics

The world is made up of space plasma. Plasma is the word given to the fourth state of matter such as solids, liquids, gaseous, and plasma. Accordingly in the Space Plasma Physics Group we study the plasmas in the Earth's magnetosphere and the solar wind, and what happens and how they react when they interact? Space physics is different from other areas of astrophysics which we study same phenomena, and in that space physics exploits in situ measurements from high elevated rockets and spacecraft.

Space physics is the study of plasmas as they occur naturally in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Accordingly, it includes a far-ranging number of topics, such as heliophysics which also includes the solar physics of the Sun: the solar wind, auroras, cosmic rays, planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres, and synchrotron radiation. Space physics is also the fundamental part of the study of space weather and has a significant implication not only to understand the universe, but also to the real-world everyday life, including the operation of infrastructures and weather satellites.
