Modeling, observing, and understanding flows and magnetic fields in the Earth's core and in the Sun
30 Nov 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, United Kingdom
INI – Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Like many other stars and planets, the Earth and the Sun possess magnetic fields built by dynamo action. Unlike the magnetism of most other astrophysical objects, though, the Solar and terrestrial fields have been closely studied for generations, yielding a wide variety of observational constraints that continue to challenge theory and defy prediction. Both analytical theory and numerical simulations have cumulatively yielded significant insight into how both objects build their magnetism, but a comprehensive understanding of this process has remained elusive. This meeting will aim to scrutinise and assess the results of such modelling efforts by comparison to the vast and ongoing array of observations of both the Earth and the Sun.
Extra-Terrestrial Geology; Exploring Mars As An Earth-bound Astronaut
11 Feb 2021 • Online, United Kingdom
Organised by IoP West Midlands Branch (Keele Centre)
Dr. Natasha Stephen is a planetary scientist studying the origin and geological evolution of bodies within our Solar System, including Mars, the Moon and asteroids. Natasha uses samples returned from the Red Planet to study past volcanic eruptions on Mars, and uses spacecraft data from satellites and Mars rovers to link these samples to the Martian surface. Both NASA and ESA have sent recent missions to Mars, and there is a new Mars rover, Perseverance, about to touch down in the coming days… So, join us as we explore what we already know about the Red Planet, and what we have yet to discover!
Cost: FREE! These talks are open to everyone and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP.
IS-Cambridge 2021 — 10th International Symposium on Geotechnical Aspects of Underground Construction in Soft Ground
28 Jun 2021 - 30 Jun 2021 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Welcome to TC204 Cambridge 2021. In line with TC204 terms of reference, the main topics addressed by TC204 Cambridge 2021 concern the geotechnical aspects of the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of deep excavations, tunnels and large underground structures, with particular emphasis on the development, effects and control of ground movements, their interaction with existing structures, mitigation measures and risk management.
Field case studies • Physical modelling • Sensing technologies • Seismic response of underground infrastructure • Numerical modelling • Historic/Masonry structures affected by underground construction activities • Smart infrastructure materials • Ground improvement in soft ground
