Emirates News Agency – New York University Abu Dhabi scientists study: Huge vortex waves moving in the sun

ABU DHABI, 29th August / WAM / A new study conducted by a team of solar physicists at New York University Abu Dhabi revealed the formation of huge vortex waves moving in the sun and extending at a speed of 125,000 miles per hour under the surface of the sun.

This study was supervised by Laurent Gizon, co-principal researcher at the Space Science Center of New York University Abu Dhabi, who achieved this scientific achievement on behalf of the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) and the University of Göttingen, Germany, in cooperation with a team of scientists, based on ten years of observations and observations received From NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The study helped to discover oscillations on the surface of the sun compared to the period of one solar rotation of 27 days. The observed oscillations on the surface of the sun appeared like swirling and circular movements that travel at speeds of about three miles per hour.

Laurent Gizon said: “The discovery of this new type of solar oscillation represents an interesting achievement because it will allow us to infer many properties such as the convective force that controls the solar dynamism associated with the generation of the solar magnetic field. Information about the dynamics and internal structure of the Sun.
