NRAO Colloquium

Dr. Cara Battersby, post-doc at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, will present the NRAO-NM colloquium. Her talk is titled “The Milky Way Laboratory.”  Our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is our closest laboratory for studying physical processes throughout the Universe.  Submillimeter observations of the cool, dense gas and dust in the Milky Way provide insights on universal processes including how stars form in both regular and extreme environments and how gas is organized on galactic scales.  Battersby will discuss 1) how we can use molecular clouds to trace our Galaxy's spiral structure, 2) how star clusters continue to accrete significant mass while they are forming, and 3) how observing the galactic center can help us learn more about how gas is converted into stars during the peak epoch of cosmic star formation. https://science.nrao.edu/facilities/vla/ctw/coll/fall2016. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).

Math Department Colloquium

Lindsay Waldrop of the NMT Biology Department will present the Math Department colloquium. Her talk is titled "Modeling the Function and Evolution of Flexible, Biological Structures." Many animals use flexible structures to drive fluid flow both internally and externally. Waldrop will present a model of fluid flow in a circulatory system driven by a valveless, tubular heart using the immersed boundary method (IBM), validated by experimental measurements on the circulatory system of a tunicate. She will present the basis of a new collaboration with Yanyan He to quantify the effects of biological variation on this system to investigate its evolution. 3:30 p.m. in Weir 102.

NRAO Special Colloquium

Rachel Friesen of the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics is the guest speaker for a NRAO-Socorro special colloquium. Her talk is titled "Mass Assembly in Star-forming Clouds from Filaments to Disks." Recent surveys of dust continuum emission within Galactic star-forming regions have revealed the ubiquity of filamentary structures in molecular clouds. The prevalence of filaments within star-forming regions raises the tantalizing possibility that the star formation efficiency in molecular clouds is strongly dependent on how these dense filaments form and evolve. Using a summary of recent GBT, VLA and ALMA results, Friesen will show how the combined analysis of gas dynamics and chemistry in star-forming regions is critical for testing models of filamentary formation and evolution. She also will present early science results from the Green Bank Ammonia Survey (GAS) that is mapping the dense molecular gas of all the major star-forming molecular clouds within 500 pc with the GBT. 10 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
