Listen to the aurorae, and detect solar flares with radio waves!
We describe a project for monitoring solar flares via radio waves.
Time and location

About the event
As the 11-year solar cycle peaks, we'll focus on how solar flares impact the magnetosphere and cause aurorae, central to Greenland's folklore. The project is suitable for high-school and undergraduate students. Reception of low frequency radio waves allow us to listen to aurorae and other phenomena occuring in our ionosphere.
