EF2225 Project in Space Physics 12.0 credits

Projekt i rymdfysik

The course aims to give some practical experience of performing one or several typical tasks in the field of space physics, including data analysis and development or evaluation of measurement techniques and instrumentation. The work will take place over a longer time. One or more tutors will be available during much of the project time, but it is essential that you are willing to work independently.

Note that you have to identify a project by contacting a potential tutor before you choose the course!

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course you should have some practical experience of performing one or several typical tasks in the field of space physics, including data analysis and development or evaluation of measurement techniques and instrumentation. You should be able to formulate a realistic goal for a time-restricted task, plan it, follow up the execution with the help of the formulated plan, and to be able to document your work in an effective way.

Course main content

The project tasks may include:

  • processing satellite and ground-based instrument data
  • scientific analysis of satellite and ground-based data
  • design of a component of a satellite instrument
  • literature search and summary of a particular field
  • programming of data processing and presentation tools.

Disposition

The work will take place during 6-8 weeks . One or more tutors will be available during much of the project time, but it is essential that you are willing to work independently.

Eligibility
