Duration: 1 Hour
Location: NRAO

Dr. Naomi McClure-Griffiths, professor at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University, will present the NRAO-Socorro Colloquium. Her talk is titled “The Milky Way as a Laboratory for Galaxy Evolution.” Galactic winds are the dominant form of galaxy-scale feedback observed in the nearby and high-redshift Universe. Often emanating from the nuclei of massive galaxies, Galactic winds can circulate hot, enriched gas within a galaxy's halo and out of its gravitational potential to enrich the surrounding intergalactic medium. The nuclear wind of the Milky Way provides one of the closest laboratories for Galactic winds in a non-starburst galaxy.McClure-Griffiths will describe how atomic hydrogen emission data on the Galactic Centre is helping us to probe the outflow of the Milky Way's nuclear wind. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
