  • NO Physics Table this week!

    Volume 26, Issue 20 (March 9th, 2020)

    Instead, see the post about an alternative lunch!

  • Lunch for Helen, Barry, and everyone!

    Volume 26, Issue 20 (March 9th, 2020)

    Join the department in saying “Welcome Helen” and “Congrats Barry!” over Tuesday lunch.  We’ll bring in food from El Tri to celebrate.  Come eat during common time this Tuesday, down in the Ground State.

    Come to the LAST Physics Table of the term!  It will be the last because we’re doing something else next week.  See the post about Welcome Celebrations!

    Volume 26, Issue 19 (March 2, 2020)

    Hi, all!

    On Tuesday of 10th week, instead of Physics Table, we’ll have a Welcome and Congratulations lunch for everyone in the department.  We’d like to officially welcome Helen Minsky as a new tenure-track faculty member in the department (yes, we know she’s already been teaching for two terms…).  We would also like to celebrate the fact that Barry Costanzi will have a change of status and join the faculty in a tenure-track position as well, starting next fall.

    Come join the faculty and staff of the Physics and Astronomy department in the Ground State during common time Tuesday the 10th to celebrate!

    Please RSVP to Trenne if you plan to come, in order to make sure there’s enough food for everyone.

    Heat Transfer Mechanics in Urban Environments:

    The Urban Heat Island, or UHI, represents a complicated phenomenon that describes the fact that urban environments are constantly at a higher temperature than the surrounding rural land. This phenomenon is a combination of various factors such as convection, advection, specific qualities such as thermal conductivity or heat capacity of materials used in buildings, and many more. In this talk, I will be going through many of these factors and modelling how heat moves through a city using fluid dynamics and experimental data. Along with this, I will be looking at possible ways we can reduce the strong heat storage capabilities that our current day cities have.

  • DCC Meeting

    Volume 26, Issue 16 (Feb 10, 2020)

    OMH 107 at noon on Thursday, February 13

    If you’re on the DCC, we’ll see you there!  If you aren’t on the DCC, but would like to bring something up to the department, talk to a DCC member  to have them put it on the agenda!


    Volume 26, Issue 15 (Feb 3, 2020)

    Do you remember what this is??  I know it’s been a busy term– but we’re ready to head back to the LDC for a social lunch.  Join us at noon Tuesday in the Class of ’51 Dining Room.
