Lidia van Driel-Gesztelyi

My Research Interests are
  • Emergence and decay of magnetic flux on the solar surface
  • Long-term evolution of active regions
  • Coronal mass ejections
  • Magnetic helicity
  • Coronal heating
  • Flows in the solar atmosphere and generation of the solar wind
My BIG Question about Solar & Stellar Physics is 

''Shall we ever fully understand the generation and evolution of solar magnetic fields?''  

A Solar Quote I Love is 

''If it were not for its magnetic field, the Sun would be as dull a star as most astronomers think it is.''   R. B. Leighton 

One Fact About Me is 

I am an enthusiastic cook.

The cartoon shows the evolution of the magnetic connectivities of a coronal mass ejection (CME) in the low solar corona (from Mandrini et al., 2007, Solar Physics, 244, pp. 25-44). Due to magnetic reconnections with surrounding magnetic structures a large part of the Sun becomes constituent of the CME.
