Online Colloquium Series for WHPI

To continue to promote discussion and collaborations across the various heliophysics and planetary disciplines, we are starting a series of monthly WHPI Web Colloquia. Each colloquium will consist of two 20 min presentations + 5-10min for questions.

The next colloquium will be on Thursday, September 17that noon EST (9am PST):

We will be hearing from Marissa Vogt about the solar wind interaction with Jupiter’s magnetosphere, as well as from Brian Thomas on informatics.

Please join the WHPI mailing list to receive announcements of upcoming speakers, as well as instructions on how to connect (to be sent out the week of the colloquium).

Instructions to join the Zoom meeting have now been mailed to our mailing list. If you have not received them and would like to join our Colloquium, please email us at

For future WHPI Colloquia, we would like to ask the community to suggest topics/speakers and/or volunteer to give a presentation on subjects related to WHPI in general. Presenting preliminary results from the WHPI observing campaigns is very welcome. Please email your suggestions to
