Editors: Takashi Sekii
These are proceedings from Hinode-3, the third Hinode
Science Meeting, which was organized in December 2009
at Hitotsubashi Memorial Hall, Tokyo.
e conference brought together scientists from around
the world to discuss scientific results from Hinode, a
highly successful solar observing satellite developed,
launched, and operated by an international collaboration.
Although the main focus was on the results obtained from
instruments aboard Hinode, it was in a broader context of
solar physics in general that these results were presented
and discussed. e 97 papers contained in the volume
cover such topics as: solar interior and dynamo, physics of
quiet-sun photosphere, chromosphere phenomena,
transition region and corona, sunspots and active regions,
physics of ares and CMEs, and solar wind.
