SPOTTING AND MOVEMENTS

Renelle Takvorian
"EAAE Summerschools" Working Group (France)

Abstract

Objects:
- Movement of Sunspots using SOHO data.
- Representation of the movement. Production of models in paper or cardboard to represent the real and projected motions of the spots at different latitudes.
- Calculation of rotation speeds at different solar latitudes.
- Observation of Sunspots. Organisation of observation: methods and details for experimentation in a school context.
The workshop will use pencil and paper followed by computer applications for the rational use of SOHO data in the classroom.
