Research Interests

His research investigates the physics behind the aurora borealis (sometimes known as the northern lights), the impact of space weather on human technology and the interaction between the Martian atmosphere and the interplanetary environment. As well as exploiting an international flotilla of satellites, Jim’s research has regularly taken him to the high arctic to carry out experiments.

As a passionate science communicator, Jim has established himself as a popular speaker for public audiences and he also contributes to print and broadcast media. In 2010, he was awarded a Science in Society Fellowship by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council.

Jim is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a member of the European Geosciences Union and American Geophysical Union.

Profile

Jim Wild is a scientist studying the space environment and the links between the Sun, the Earth and other planets.

Jim studied for a degree in Physics with Space Science and Technology before completing a doctorate in solar-terrestrial physics at the University of Leicester. He is now the Professor of Space Physics at Lancaster University’s Department of Physics.

Jim Wild's Projects

2013

Lancaster University has entered into an agreement to become the UK lead in the operation and exploitation of the SuperDARN Iceland West radar with Prof Jim Wild (Physics Department) taking the Principle Investigator role.

The Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) comprises 18 high frequency coherent-scatter atmospheric research radars in the northern hemisphere, and 9 radars in the southern hemisphere, used for the study of the ionosphere and space weather. From an initial 6 radars in the northern hemisphere and 4 in the southern hemisphere in 1996 (deployed and operated by groups in the USA, Canada, France, Japan, South Africa and the UK) the expansion of the network has continued apace, both poleward into the polar cap (PolarDARN) and equatorward into mid-latitudes (StormDARN), involving new groups in Japan, the USA, Australia, and China.

The Iceland West radar is located at 63.86° N, 22.02° W near the town of Stokkseyri in Iceland. The Radar routinely measures the structure and dynamics of the upper atmosphere within an area of several million square kilometres between Iceland and North America. It is part of the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) of over 30 similar radars around the world, whose purpose is to aid understanding of the effect of the Sun and the aurora (the Northern and Southern Lights) on the upper atmosphere, and also its interactions with the lower atmosphere and hence our climate.

For centuries people have used magnetic compasses to guide them on their way and explore new territories. This has led scientists to embark on their own journeys of discovery about Earth's magnetism, and to the discovery of electromagnetism that is at the heart of modern technology - phones, TVs, computers, etc. Now, in the age of GPS, you might think that compasses are obsolete, but guidance by the Earth's magnetic field is still vital to explore for oil and minerals below ground (where GPS can't reach) and as a safety backup for planes etc. And ironically, GPS is affected by natural hazards caused by the Earth's magnetic field.

So the scientific study of Earth's magnetism continues to be important in many ways, so much so that in 2012 the European Space Agency will launch a mission called Swarm in which three satellites will orbit the Earth to survey its magnetic field in unprecedented detail. These measurements will be used to improve mathematical models of the geomagnetic field that provide a standard reference for various applications. One target area is a better understanding and description of the relatively rapid and complex magnetic fluctuations caused by electrical currents flowing in the upper atmosphere and in Space, ultimately driven by disturbances happening on the Sun that wax and wane with an 11-year solar cycle. This so-called external magnetic field also induces currents to flow in oceans and under the Earth's surface which in turn creates additional magnetic fluctuations.

Together, the external and induced magnetic field (EIMF) limits the accuracy of geomagnetic field models such that they aren't useful for surveys and navigation at places and times when the EIMF fluctuations are large, such as in the polar regions and during so-called magnetic storms that may happen once a month and last several days. The EIMF also creates a natural hazard for large-scale electrically conducting systems such as power outages in electricity grids, corrosion in oil pipelines, and even phantom railway signals.

In this project we will study the EIMF using a solar cycle's worth of measurements made at over 300 different locations around the world, recently collected together for the first time by an international project called SuperMAG. Our idea is to borrow mathematical techniques usually used by meteorologists for studying the weather and climate to identify the natural cycles and patterns of the EIMF. In conjunction with the Swarm mission, the resulting new descriptions and understanding of the EIMF "weather" and "climate" should help to improve the next generation of computer models of Earth's magnetic field. It can also be used to as a basis to assess and predict the risk of power outages in UK's National Grid caused by extreme EIMF fluctuations.

"A place in the sun: Taking solar system science to the public"

STFC Science in Society Fellowship

In terms of understanding planetary systems, the Earth's backyard is an enormous scientific laboratory. What's more, it's the only laboratory we have! Solar system science incorporates solar physics, solar-terrestrial and solar-planetary physics, planetary science and heliospheric physics. During this fellowship I will engage with the general public in order to demonstrate the relevance of research activities in solar system science to UK society.

I am particularly interested in communicating the direct relevance of research into the space environment to the public and policy-makers. For example, society is becoming increasingly reliant upon modern technologies for utilities, communication, commerce, entertainment and security, but many of these technologies are susceptible to the rapid changes and disturbances in the space environment often referred to as "space weather". Events at the Sun, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, can result in disturbed space weather in the near-Earth space environment and potentially disruptive consequences for technologies on the ground and in space. Large disturbances, on the same scale as the enormous solar flare observed by English astronomer Richard Carrington in 1859, could have a massive impact on space- and ground-based technologies such as communications satellites and electricity distribution networks, with obvious economic consequences. Solar system research is also relevant to global climate change, the search for life in our solar system and the hunt for potentially life-sustaining exoplanets - clearly issues of huge societal and cultural importance.

This fellowship will give me the time to build upon my previous outreach activities and engage with public audiences via innovative channels. As well as developing online and face-to-face activities for adult audience and schools groups, I am especially interested in exploiting mobile phone technology to deliver value-added data products and solar system science content via smartphone applications. The immediacy and interactivity offered by this technology is opening up new and exciting possibilities for public engagement and has clear potential for further exploitation across the STFC remit.

The hunt for life in the solar system is intimately linked to the search for water, found in abundance on Earth, but relatively scarce on the other “Earth-like” planets in our solar system (i.e. Venus and Mars). Given their broadly similar densities and distances from the Sun, it is likely that the Earth-like planets were all formed from broadly similar material in the early solar nebula and that the currently observed differences are a result of the differing long-term evolution of each planet. In the case of Mars, the cessation of a magnetic dynamo and the resulting collapse of the planet’s main magnetic field about 4 billion years ago are thought to have been major factors in the loss of atmospheric volatiles, such as water and carbon dioxide. This is due to the shielding effect a planetary magnetic field confers to the atmosphere and surface environment. The Earth’s magnetic field typically holds the solar wind at a distance of around ten planetary radii from the atmosphere and ionosphere. However, in the case of Mars, the absence of a significant magnetic field has allowed the solar wind direct access the atmosphere/ionosphere and resulted in the loss of volatiles (such as water) from the planetary environment to interplanetary space.

This study will investigate the interaction between regions of strong crustal magnetic field near the surface of Mars (remnants of Mars’ original magnetic field) and the solar wind. In regions where the crustal field is oriented roughly vertically, the solar wind can gain access to the atmosphere and ionosphere, where it is thought to cause heating. This heating is likely to be responsible for bulges observed in the Martian ionosphere over regions of strong near-vertical crustal field by the Mars Express spacecraft and may result in upwelling “fountains” of atmospheric material. This material can then interact with the solar wind and be removed from the Martian atmosphere, contributing to the continuing erosion of Mars’ atmosphere. The proposed research will be accomplished using numerical modelling techniques first used to study the near-Earth space environment and applying them to the very different atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetic field of Mars. A computer model will be developed to solve time-dependent equations of continuity, momentum and energy balance along simplified cusp-like magnetic field lines for the densities, field-aligned fluxes and temperatures of a number of ion species and electrons common in the Martian ionosphere.

The outcomes of this research can be validated by comparison with data returned from Mars orbiting spacecraft (e.g. ESA’s Mars Express) and will have important implications for the forthcoming Mars exploration missions (including ExoMars), the evolution of the Martian environment and broader studies of exobiology.

2007

This project addresses the scientific details in the Sun-Earth connection, particularly in a UK and European continental setting. Therefore the collaboration brings together data from the BGS magnetic observatory network and the independent Sub-Auroral Magnetometer Network (SAMNET), operated by Lancaster University in the UK. Additional data will be obtained from international magnetometer and space physics networks, within which BGS and Lancaster have major roles and contacts. We will exploit BGS archives of induced currents in the UK power grid and new data will be sought from Scottish Power and the National Grid Company

Substorms are one of the principal mechanisms that regulate the coupling between the Earth’s magnetic field and the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) embedded within the solar wind. At the dayside magnetopause, magnetic reconnection between “closed” terrestrial magnetic field lines (field lines that extend from one geomagnetic pole to the other) and the IMF results in “open” magnetic field lines with one end anchored in the Earth’s polar cap while the other remains embedded in the solar wind. Open magnetic field lines created by this process are carried into the Earth’s magnetic tail by the anti-sunward motion of the solar wind. Since the substorm concept was first introduced over 40 years ago, their role in the closure of magnetic flux in the Earth’s magnetotail has been actively debated. Four decades of ground- and space-based observations have led to the development of two competing models that rely upon different physical mechanisms to explain the sequence of cause and effect in the magnetosphere that result in the closure of open magnetic flux by reconnection in the tail and the auroral disturbances observed in the midnight sector auroral zones.

In order to determine the location of substorm onset in the tail (and discriminate between the currently proposed models) it is necessary to compare the timing of the auroral signatures of substorm onset with simultaneous in situ field and particle measurements at several locations in the magnetotail. This will reveal the sequence of events during substorm expansion phase onset. Previous attempts to resolve this uncertainly have been thwarted by the insufficient spatial coverage of in situ satellite measurements in the magnetotail, the inadequate temporal resolution of the space-based auroral imagers used to time the auroral signatures of substorm onset, the limited spatial coverage of ground-based auroral imagers, and the unclear relationship between various ground-based techniques employed to estimate the reconnection rate in the tail.

This programme of research exploited an unprecedented combination of space- and ground-based experiments in order to study the time-history of auroral breakup, current disruption, and lobe flux disconnection in the tail.
