(project studying stellar magnetism)

Bcool is a project to study the magnetic field (B) of relatively cool stars (M dwarves, small M-type stars, which have strong, thus detectable magnetic fields), essentially, to help test theories of the Sun's magnetism by looking for analogous properties of other stars, e.g., theories of the solar cycle, and dynamo models of the Sun's magnetism. Observations focus on spectroscopy and polarization.
