Today sees the inaugural MIST online seminar and the 2020 MIST business lunch taking place over Zoom. If you would like to attend, details of how to connect to the Zoom are available on the MIST Mailing List and Slack.
Daniel Verscharen (MSSL, UCL) will be talking on the topic of Kinetic physics, collisions, and turbulence in the solar wind: a multi-scale perspective from 11am to 11:50am. If you'd like to read his abstract, or look at the list of upcoming MIST seminar speakers, visit the MIST online seminars page.
The business lunch will begin at noon, following a ten minute break after Daniel's seminar, and the agenda is as follows:
In lieu of NAM happening this year, UKSP are holding a day-long discussion meeting on 30 July. For more details, see the UKSP website.
There are three sessions during the day:
The location will be the Sani Pass hotel in the beautiful Drakensberg mountains. A single shuttle bus will be provided on 31 May and 5 June to/from this remote location. The venue is at high altitude in the winter, so expect freezing but dry conditions at night, yet warm and sunny conditions in the daytime. Those venturing to the top of Sani pass into the Kingdom of Lesotho can expect freezing conditions all day with possible snow (with no skiing), but the highest pub in Africa has a solution for this.
As a result of COVID-19, the below meeting has been cancelled, and will appear in the 2020/21 round.
A RAS G discussion meeting on “System-scale observations and modelling of solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling” will be held at the Royal Astronomical Society on 17 April 2020 from 10:00–15:30. The registration fee is free for RAS members, £5 for students, or £15 for non-student non-members.
The invited speaker will be Colin Waters (University of Newcastle, Australia).
If you would like to submit an abstract, please complete the abstract submission form by 20 March 2020.
A summer school plus conference on “Nonstationary Signal Analysis in Geophysics and other fields” will take place at Gran Sasso Science Institute, in L’Aquila, Italy, on 13–18 July 2020.
During the Summer School young researchers and PhD students will have a chance to learn about new data analysis tools/techniques for non-stationary time series and their theoretical foundation.
The summer school will take place during the first four days and it will consist of three eight-hour courses. Lecturers at the school are Patrick Flandrin (ENS Lyon), Yang Wang (HKSTU), and Hau-tieng Wu (Duke University).
At the end of the school there will be a three-day conference during which the speakers will show both the applications of these techniques to real-life data and present the current frontiers of theoretical research.
Applications for prospective students of the Summer School, as well as speakers of the conference are now open; for more information and to apply please visit the event webpage.
