Teacher Information

Solar Week always devotes a day -- and on-line discussion time -- to a special solar-related theme. This time (late spring 2015), it’s Earth's upper atmosphere, also known as the ionosphere.  Our essential question is: What is the unique role of the ionosphere in the Sun-Earth system? 

In addition to our usual wonderful and knowledgeable solar scientists answering your questions about the Sun-Earth connection, we've invited some ionosphere experts to join our panel during the week of May 18-22. And we have provided some helpful links to a couple of websites which provide information, videos and activities on the ionosphere.
