Jupiter Research

My Jupiter research is split into two areas: aurorae and Great Red Spot.

Feel free to ask anything @physicsJ or jameso@bu.edu. I’m happy to send you the paper.

Here’s a great overview video made by Space.com!

Jupiter’s aurora
We are currently analysing Keck telescope data of Jupiter’s aurorae, which was taken while the Juno spacecraft was measuring the conditions of the solar wind. With this we hope to assess the extent to which the solar wind affects the auroral temperature, i.e. do compressions in the solar wind lead to heating of the Jovian aurora? I’ll let you know in six months, hopefully!
