16. Spatial-Variance Magnetic Synoptic Maps

Contributed by Luca Bertello. Posted on May 26, 2014

Bertello and collaborators at NSO have made a first attempt to estimate some of the uncertainties in magnetic synoptic maps and evaluated their impact on coronal and heliospheric models. They found that accounting for the statistical uncertainties arising from the distribution of image pixels contributing to each bin in the synoptic map may produce a noticeable change in the results obtained from these models.
