Loren has been selected to move on to the final round of CU Boulder’s inaugural Three-Minute-Thesis competition! This event allows researchers in various departments across the Graduate School to explain their research in three minutes to the general public, using only one static powerpoint slide. Loren's talk will be titled "Living with a Star: the Beauty and Perils of Our Sun," centered around his recent research on near-surface shear dynamics in the solar convection zone. The competition will take place February 20, 3--5 PM in the UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom.
Loren Matilsky gave a talk in "The Sun" session entitled, "Toward a Self-Consistent Dynamical Model of the NSSL." Read his abstract here.
ASTR 7500 (CU Boulder course number) announced: "The focus of this offering is helio and asteroseismology. We will examine the theoretical underpinnings, practical applications, and scientific outcomes."
Tuesday at 2pm in E399, Piyush will be speaking about "Transport of Internetwork magnetic flux elements in the solar photosphere." His abstract can be found on NSO pages here.

Evan Anders has a new paper in press in Phys. Rev. Fluids entitled: "Convective heat transport in stratified atmospheres at low and high Mach number". Congrats, Evan!
We'll be meeting weekly this summer in SPSC for a solar physics round table! Sign up on Steve's door to give brief, informal, ~25 minute presentations of your work, to be followed by discussion of recent solar news and results in the literature!
ASTR 7500 (CU Boulder course number) announced: "This course will cover the physics and observation of solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). It will cover the basic physical principles involved in flares and CMEs, including gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, kinetic theory, and radiation processes. It will also cover the methods used to observe and study flares, including visible and UV spectroscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, and radio astronomy." Visit the course website here.

Ben Greer has been awarded the R. N. Thomas award for, “For his thesis research, he focused on fundamental reassessments of how one can use high-resolution helioseismic observational data to probe solar subsurface flows in detail within the near-surface shear layer.” Techniques developed by Greer are impacting the way the study of subsurface dynamics of the Sun. Congrats, Ben!
