2008 - Arctowski Medal, U.S. National Academy of Sciences For pioneering studies of the magnetized solar wind plasma from 0.3 to 102 AU, including the recent crossings of the Voyagers of the heliospheric termination shock and their entry in the heliosheath.
1997 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His primary areas of study are Solar wind, Magnetic field, Astrophysics, Astronomy and Interplanetary magnetic field. His work carried out in the field of Solar wind brings together such families of science as Spacecraft, Computational physics, Atmospheric sciences and Magnetometer. His study of Magnetic flux is a part of Magnetic field.
Leonard F. Burlaga combines subjects such as Magnetopause, Magnetosphere, L-shell, Dipole model of the Earth's magnetic field and Magnetic cloud with his study of Astrophysics. The various areas that Leonard F. Burlaga examines in his Astronomy study include Heliosphere and Plasma. His research investigates the link between Interplanetary magnetic field and topics such as Coronal hole that cross with problems in Nanoflares, Helmet streamer, Polar wind, Corona and Condensed matter physics.
Leonard F. Burlaga focuses on Solar wind, Magnetic field, Astrophysics, Heliosphere and Astronomy. His Solar wind research incorporates elements of Computational physics and Magnetohydrodynamics. The study of Magnetic field is intertwined with the study of Geophysics in a number of ways.
His research investigates the connection between Astrophysics and topics such as Atmospheric sciences that intersect with problems in Wind speed. The concepts of his Heliosphere study are interwoven with issues in Cosmic ray, Energetic neutral atom, Solar cycle, Heliospheric current sheet and Interstellar medium. His Astronomy study combines topics in areas such as Ion, Solar energetic particles and Interplanetary spaceflight.
Leonard F. Burlaga mainly focuses on Heliosphere, Astrophysics, Magnetic field, Interstellar medium and Plasma. His Heliosphere study contributes to a more complete understanding of Solar wind. Leonard F. Burlaga interconnects Computational physics, Magnetic reconnection and Magnetometer in the investigation of issues within Solar wind.
His studies in Astrophysics integrate themes in fields like Ion, Low frequency and Space physics. His study in Field extends to Magnetic field with its themes. His work in the fields of Solar maximum overlaps with other areas such as Log-normal distribution.
Leonard F. Burlaga spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Heliosphere, Interstellar medium, Magnetic field and Plasma. Leonard F. Burlaga is interested in Cosmic ray, which is a branch of Astrophysics. His Heliosphere research integrates issues from Energetic neutral atom and Astronomy.
His work deals with themes such as Range, Turbulence, Magnitude and Solar wind, which intersect with Interstellar medium. Leonard F. Burlaga specializes in Solar wind, namely Coronal mass ejection. His research integrates issues of Spacecraft, Shock wave and Shock in his study of Plasma.
