Seminars for Scientists

2015 Fall Schedule

This page is for the LASP Science Seminars Fall 2015 Series. See upcoming talks listed below. We still have open slots and are actively recruiting new speakers. If you or a colleague would like to give a seminar this fall, please contact the Seminar Organizer Mikki Osterloo (firstname.lastname at lasp.colorado.edu). LASP seminars are held every Thursday at 4:00 PM in the SPSC building, generally in room W120. Refreshments are served at 3:45. All LASP science seminars are open to visitors and our colleagues in other departments.

Current Schedule (expanded):

8/27/2015 – Satellite observations of stratospheric gravity waves from AIRS and IASI: Mountain waves and storm sources

Speaker:   Lars Hoffmann (Juelich Research Center)
Date & Time:   8/27 ,  4:00 PM Location: SPSC W120
Abstract:  

Gravity waves are an important driver for the atmospheric circulation and have substantial impact on weather and climate. Satellite instruments offer excellent opportunities to study gravity waves on a global scale. This talk presents two recent papers on stratospheric gravity wave observations of the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite and the Infrared […]

9/24/2015- The Potassium-Argon Laser Experiment (KArLE): In Situ Geochronology for Planetary Robotic Missions

Speaker:   Barbara Cohen (NASA MSFC)
Date & Time:   9/24 ,  4:00 PM Location: SPSC W120
Abstract:  

Isotopic dating is an essential tool to establish an absolute chronology for geological events, including crystallization history, magmatic evolution, and alteration events. The capability for in situ geochronology will open up the ability for geochronology to be accomplished as part of lander or rover complement, on multiple samples rather than just those returned. An in […]
