In this talk, I will first give a brief review on the general topic of space weather research and solar activity. Then I will report some recent discoveries of SWRL. These include (1) negative flares, (2) rapid changes of magnetic fields and flow fields associated with flares, (3) circular ribbon flares associated with spine-fan magnetic structure. The research is enhanced significantly by using the unprecedented data from the 1.6m New Solar Telescope at Big Bear Solar Observatory. Read more.
