Creating a model of the Sun as a whole

“For too many years, the study of the Sun has been split into internal (i.e., the origin of the solar magnetic field) and external solar physics topics (i.e., the existence of sun spots) with no attention to the complex interplay between them.” – Mats Carlsson, Professor at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics of the University of Oslo

The WHOLE SUN project is financed by a Synergy grant from the European Research Council (ERC) and it is shared between the University of St Andrews (UK), University of Paris-Saclay CEA (France), University of Oslo (Norway) and the Max Planck Institute MPS (Germany). World leading European solar/stellar physicists join expertise and techniques to create for the first time a global integrated view of our star.
