Public lecture — The Impact of Volcanic Eruptions on the Environment: Observations and Insights
12. Mär 2024 • Physics Department, University of Oxford, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Zusammenfassung:
In 2015 over 1 billion people (14.3% of the world’s population) lived within 100 km of a volcano that has erupted during the Holocene. However, those living further away are not immune from volcanic effects. For example, the 2010 eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano had a huge impact on air travel, with over 300 airports in approximately 25 countries, and a correspondingly large airspace, closed in Europe during 15-21 April 2010. Over 100,000 flights were cancelled over that week, affecting 7 million passengers, and resulting in $1.7 billion USD in lost revenue to airlines. This joint Institute of Physics ‘Environmental Physics Group’ Day and Royal Meteorological Society event will bring together experts in the impacts of volcanic eruptions; including local air quality, atmospheric composition, aviation and climate change. Through a series of talks the day will provide valuable insights and observations regarding the impact of volcanic eruptions on the environment. The day will start with an overview of volcanic processes and effects before three focussed sessions on: Local Volcanic Effects; Volcanic Changes to Atmospheric Composition and Climate; and Volcanic Effects on Aviation. The day will end with a look at the future of volcanic monitoring and hazard warning.

Public lecture — Explosives: The Past, Present and Future
20. Mär 2024 • Malvern St James School, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Zusammenfassung:
Explosives have been part of our lives for many years with the first recording of an explosive powder being used in China in 220 BC. Nowadays they are part of our everyday life: in airbags, ejector seats and fireworks as well as propulsion for space shuttles and demolition aids. Professor Jackie Akhavan will introduce the various types of explosions and explain the conditions under which a chemical reaction becomes explosive.

Public lecture — Energy Performance of Buildings
21. Mär 2024 • Keele University, Staffordshire, Großbritannien
Veranstalter:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Zusammenfassung:
Energy savings figures: scientific fact or made-up nonsense? We will hear from Professor Richard Fitton on the way that energy savings measures are quantified in a unique set of labs at the University of Salford. The Energy House facilities allow scientists to recreate climates from across the globe, including temperatures from -20 to +40 degrees Celsius, with rain, wind, solar gain and even snow. Join us to find out what works and what doesn’t.

National Conference for Science Technicians 2024
04. Sep 2024 • London, Großbritannien
Zusammenfassung:
The National Conference for Science Technicians (NCST) celebrates technical staff and their vital contribution to the sciences, as well as the Technician Commitment. Bringing together attendees from across the chemical sciences, the conference offers the opportunity to hear about how you can broaden your career and encourage the next generation of technicians. You’ll also be able to network with colleagues and hear from inspirational speakers. The conference is free to attend and open to chemical science and physics technicians in any sector, and you don’t have to be a member of a professional body to attend.
