Royal Astronomical Society Prize for Solar Theorist

15 January 2021

Professor Ineke De Moortel has been awarded the Royal Astronomical Society 2021 Chapman medal for her seminal work on the nature of waves in the solar atmosphere. Her unique contributions to the topic of coronal waves stand out from the field, resting on her rare combination of both theoretical and observational expertise. Her work has bridged the gap between idealised MHD models and observations, revealing the fundamental properties of coronal oscillations, quantifying their role in heating the solar corona and demonstrating their power as a diagnostic tool.
