The Solar Terrestrial Physics Research Programme (STP) at the Swedish
Institute of Space Physics is since 2018 part of Solar Terrestrial and
Atmospheric Research (STAR). The new web page is under development and
will also be available in English. It will be found in www.irf.se.

The programme conducts research into aspects of the sun, the solar
corona and the space environment, including the solar wind's
interaction with satellites, the Earth and its magnetosphere.
The objectives of the programme are to:
- Improve our understanding of basic space plasma physics
phenomena in the solar-terrestrial environment, with focus on
problems related with the variable Sun and its influence on the
Earth, its atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere;
- Improve our understanding of the long-term solar
variability and how it affects the Earth, human
society, technological systems and climate;
- Communicate our knowledge about solar-terrestrial relations
to Swedish society.
For questions regarding the research programme, contact Johan Kero.
