Physics Department Seminar

Date: Thu. 26 Mar, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: Workman Center

Dr. George Kiladis of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency is the featured speaker for the Physics Department seminar. Kiladis is a research meteorologist at the Physical Sciences Division of the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. His talk is titled "In Search of the Elusive Eastward Inertio-gravity Wave." Mixed Rossby-gravity (MRG) waves were the first waves predicted by Matsuno's equatorial shallow water theory to be observed in the atmosphere. MRG waves are the dominant control of synoptic scale convective activity over the Pacific, act as seeds for typhoons, and comprise an integral portion of the convective activity within the Madden-Julian Oscillation. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
