HAO Winter Colloquium presents Jeff Linsky, University of Colorado

Connecting solar and stellar chromospheres, the  interstellar medium, exoplanet atmospheres, and habitability

I will give a short summary of what we know about exoplanets and then spend much of the seminar discussing how to reconstruct or otherwise estimate the Lyman-alpha emission incident on exoplanet atmospheres and why this is very important.

The geospace response to nonmigrating tidesNumerous observations and model studies made during the past six years have unequivocally revealed that geospace owes a considerable amount of its longitudinal, local time, seasonal/latitudinal and day-to-day variability to solar atmospheric tides from the lower atmosphere. An unexpected and new realization was the discovery that tropospheric weather is important for the “space weather” of the ionosphere-thermosphere-mesosphere (ITM) system, with tides being the main coupling mechanism.

HAO Colloquium Series Presents Toby Wood, UCSC

Numerical simulations of the solar tachoclineThe tachocline—a thin layer of shear between the Sun's differentially rotating envelope and uniformly rotating interior—has long been recognized as a vital component of the solar dynamo. Recent work suggests that it is also central to the Sun's rotational and compositional evolution.

HAO Colloquium Series Presents Ellen Cousins

Characteristics of variability in high-latitude ionospheric plasma drifts

HAO Colloqiuim Presents Fran Bagenal (CU/LASP)

Is Jupiter a colossal comet? Will Juno decide?Not surprisingly, the king of the planets has the strongest magnetic field among the planets of our solar system, with a reach extending far beyond its orbiting moons. The volcanic moon Io loses a ton of atmospheric material every second, gas that becomes ionized and swept up by the magnetic field. Iogenic plasma fills Jupiter’s giant magnetosphere. Jupiter’s magnetosphere is the largest structure in the solar system, averaging about 150 times the width of the planet.

Transition to Agile Software Development

While not new, Agile frameworks have come into the spotlight in recent years for yielding significant improvements over heavyweight process. The Visualization and Enabling Technologies section has been transitioning to Agile frameworks for our Science Gateways efforts. In this talk I will share what being Agile has meant for group. I will cover our experience in transitioning to Scrum for software development and the benefits we have experienced. I will also discus our newly underway efforts to utilize Kanban for related activities such as user support and infrastructure management.
