[56.04] The Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager for the Solar Dynamics Observatory

P.H. Scherrer (Stanford University), SDO/HMI Team

The Solar Dynamics Observatory, the first mission of the Living With a Star program, will provide a new look at the solar interior, photospheric magnetic fields, and the atmosphere. One of the high priority goals for SDO is to develop new observations and analysis tools to better understand the origin of solar variability and its impact the geospace environment. The HMI instrument as proposed by a consortium led by Stanford University will provide the solar interior and magnetic field observations necessary to meet the goals of SDO.
