Zooming in on Europe: a new, high-resolution land cover map
Press Service

(WARSAW, Poland – Oct. 16, 2019) Scientists at the CBK PAN have developed a fast new method to automatically classify land cover at high resolution. A prototype map of Europe has just been released under a contract with the European Space Agency.

How well do we understand the resonant radiation pressure in the heliosphere?
Our research

In the beginning of this year, scientists from the Laboratory for Solar System Physics and Astrophysics of the Space Research Centre, Polish Academy of Sciences (CBK PAN) developed a new model (see here) of the resonance radiation pressure acting on hydrogen atoms in the heliosphere.

A corridor to the Sun for select nanodust particles
Our research

The smallest dust grains in the circumsolar dust cloud are the nanodust particles, i.e., the dust grains with the sizes of a few to a few tens millionth parts of millimeter. They are so small they include just several dozen thousands of atoms.

Conclusions from ENA observations from HSTOF: The heliosphere has a tail and is asymmetrical!
Our research

Magnetic field strongly disturbs the motion of electrically charged particles in space but neutral atoms are insensitive to magnetic forces and consequently they move freely in all directions. This is true also for energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) in the heliosphere.

Pickup ion-induced magnetic waves observed by the Voyager spacecraft beyond Pluto
Our research

Interplanetary space is filled with magnetized plasma from the Sun (the solar wind) and interstellar gas, mainly hydrogen and helium, which continuously flows through the heliosphere. The interstellar atoms are ionized by extreme ultraviolet radiation and the solar wind. In result of ionization of the interstellar atoms, new ions in the solar wind are created.
