Modeling, observing, and understanding flows and magnetic fields in the Earth's core and in the Sun
30. Nov 2020 - 04. Dez 2020 • Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
INI – Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Zusammenfassung:
Like many other stars and planets, the Earth and the Sun possess magnetic fields built by dynamo action. Unlike the magnetism of most other astrophysical objects, though, the Solar and terrestrial fields have been closely studied for generations, yielding a wide variety of observational constraints that continue to challenge theory and defy prediction. Both analytical theory and numerical simulations have cumulatively yielded significant insight into how both objects build their magnetism, but a comprehensive understanding of this process has remained elusive. This meeting will aim to scrutinise and assess the results of such modelling efforts by comparison to the vast and ongoing array of observations of both the Earth and the Sun.

UKRI STFC Introductory Course in Astronomy for New Research Students
11. Jan 2021 - 15. Jan 2021 • virtual event, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
Organized by the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium, facilitated by the Institute of Physics
Zusammenfassung:
The STFC introductory course in Astronomy for new research students will run from Monday the 11th and Friday the 15th of January 2021. This will be a virtual event, organized by the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium, facilitated by the Institute of Physics. Lectures will cover topics in astronomy and astrophysics ranging from the study of the Solar system to the most distant galaxies. These will be anchored to talks describing the technical details and scientific aims of ongoing and imminent large surveys, which will provide the running theme for this course. In addition to academic lectures, there will be sessions covering transferrable skills, public engagement and data visualization. Breakout sessions between talks will provide opportunities to meet the speakers and ask questions informally.

Life And Work Of Caroline and William Herschel
21. Jan 2021 • Webinar, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
Organised by IoP West Midlands Branch (Keele Centre)
Zusammenfassung:
William Herschel is one of the outstanding figures in the history of astronomy and physics having discovered the planet Uranus and Infrared radiation. However, his sister, Caroline, is often overlooked, yet she discovered several comets and was instrumental in William’s work. In this talk we will not only take a whistle-stop tour of the unconventional lives and work of William and Caroline, from Hanover to Bath and then to Slough, but we will look at the historical and social context that enabled such discoveries to be made. This talk will be of interest to anyone with an interest in the history of astronomy and physics, but also to teachers of science wanting to see how science is rooted in the society in which it is produced.
