Physics Department Seminar

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.

NRAO Colloquium

Dr. Ken Kellermann of the NRAO will deliver the weekly colloquium. He is a senior scientist at the NRAO and a research professor at the University of Virginia. His talk is "Radio Loud and Radio Quiet Quasars." He will discuss the bizarre circumstances surrounding the discovery of quasars through their strong radio emission, followed by the discovery of their more populous radio quiet counterpart. He will also describe the results of two VLA programs which suggest that the radio emission from radio quiet quasars is mostly due to star formation in the host galaxy. Finally, he will review what we have learned from VLBA observations of radio loud quasars as well as the challenges presented by the recent space VLBI observations of high brightness temperatures in some quasars. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
