Coming up in July: Aurorasaurus Hosts Group Discussions

Aurorasaurus regularly hosts deep-dive virtual Journal Clubs in which they examine classic aurora articles and translate scientific language.

The goal of these discussions is to help make aurora science more accessible to citizen scientists. This year Aurorasaurus plans to host reading of two articles. The first will be the 1978 classic “Observed Characteristics of Auroral Forms” by T. Neil Davis on July 8 and 22 from 12-1pm ET (9-10am PT). To attend this event, please register here.

The second discussion will be held Sept 16 and 30, from 12-1pm ET (9-10am PT). Aurorasaurus is taking suggestions for a good article for the second discussion. Let them know your ideas by emailing them at: aurorasaurus.info@gmail.com!

The Aurorasaurus team also want to invite you to join them on Friday, July 22, at 2:00-3:00 pm ET (18:00-19:00 UTC) for a viewing and discussion of “TEK Talks: Knowledge, Nature, and Infrastructures of Colonialism in Alaska” by Dr. Philip Wight of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

This is the next in a series of community discussions we will be having to continue the work that began in 2020 with #ShutDownSTEM.
