Astrophysics Seminar – Wed 22nd June 3pm – Vincent van Eylen

This week’s online-only Astrophysics Seminar at 3pm on Wednesday is the last scheduled for the 2021-22 season. Vincent van Eylen (UCL) will tell us about “The architecture of planets and their host stars” Abstract: Thousands of exoplanets have now been detected and they exhibit a striking diversity in properties, with system architectures sometimes similar but […]

Astrophysics Seminar – Wednesday June 15th 3pm – Can Cui on “Turbulence in outer protoplanetary disks”

This week’s astrophysics seminar is by Can Cui (Cambridge). Online, and projected in LTA, Online access in Teams at the address below. Abstract: Turbulence is essential to many fundamental processes in protoplanetary disks, including angular momentum transport, dust evolution, and planet migration. I will focus on two instabilities that can drive turbulent motions in outer […]

Astrophysics Seminar 8th June 3pm on Teams – Laura Rogers on White Dwarf planetary systems.

Laura Rogers (Cambridge) will present remotely via Teams, and be projected in LTA. Title and abstract: An observational perspective on white dwarf planetary systems Around a third of white dwarfs are externally polluted by planetary material. It is hypothesised that chunks of planetary material get perturbed onto star grazing orbits, tidally disrupt, and accrete onto […]

Astrophysics Seminars – today and for the rest of the month.

Today’s speaker is our own Beatriz Sanchez-Cano, talking about “Martian Space Weather” live at 3pm in LTA, and the talk should also be streamed on Teams. Teams link for today’s talk: For the rest of term (and slightly beyond) the following schedule is planned: 8th June – Laura Rogers “An observational perspective on white […]

Astrophysics Seminar Wednesday 15th Dec, 3pm (POSTPONED from 8th Dec)

This week’s seminar will be by Rowan Smith (Manchester), on  “The Cloud Factory: resolving star formation in its galactic context” Abstract: I present suites of simulations that resolve individual molecular clouds down to ~0.1 pc scales while they are embedded within a larger galaxy simulation. This enables us to study fragmentation and star formation within […]

Astrophysics Seminar Wed 1st 3pm.

This week’s seminar will be by Renske Smit (LJMU), on  “An ALMA view of galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization” Abstract: In the past decade hundreds of galaxy candidates have been identified in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR), selected from their rest-frame UV light. Only a handful of these sources, however, have spectroscopic redshift determinations […]

Astrophysics Seminar – Wed 24th Nov 3pm – Julie Wardlow (Lancaster)

This week’s astrophysics seminar will be by Julie Wardlow, on “Understanding the environments of extreme dusty star-formation in the distant Universe” Abstract: In recent years the high-redshift Universe has been increasingly opened to scrutiny at far-infrared wavelengths, where cool dust emission from star-formation dominates. The dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs), selected at these wavelengths likely represent […]

Astrophysics Seminar Wed 17th 3pm

This week’s seminar will be by Nienke van der Marel (Leiden) on “Novel views on planet formation and dust evolution: connecting protoplanetary disk demographics with exoplanets, debris disks and exoplanet atmospheres.“ The Teams link can be found iat the bottom of this post. Please get in touch if there are any access issues (ab520). Abstract: […]
