NRAO Colloquium

Date: Fri. 8 May, 2015 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: NRAO

Dr. James DiFrancesco will present this week's NRAO/NM Colloquium. He is an associate research officer with the National Research Council and an adjunct professor at the University of Calgary. DiFrancesco will present "Filaments in Star-forming Molecule Clouds." Recent submillimeter surveys of nearby molecular clouds by the Herschel Space Observatory have revealed that such clouds are rife with filamentary structures. Francesco will describe the progress in exploiting the rich Herschel data of nearby star-forming molecular clouds, including the release of the first catalogues, and new attempts to constrain the dynamics of filaments through large-area NH3 mapping of nearby clouds with the Green Bank Telescope. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
