Brian Romans, Virginia Tech 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Reconstructing Deep Ocean Circulation during Cenozoic Climate Transitions from the Marine Sediment Record Abstract: Ocean circulation plays a critical role in the Earth’s climate system through the storage and transfer of heat and carbon dioxide. The North Atlantic and Southern Ocean are of particular interest because these are regions where deep-water components of global circulation develop. Overall patterns and functioning of modern oceanic circulation is relatively well understood, but significant uncertainty remains about circulation…

Tigran Sedrakyan University of Massachusetts, Amherst Abstract: Topologically ordered states, such as the quantum spin liquids, are new states of matter with various exotic properties, including emergent excitations with fractional quantum numbers and fractional statistics, and robust topology-dependent ground state degeneracies. This makes quantum spin liquids promising candidate materials for quantum computers and other transformative low-power electronics that are expected to provide revolutionary changes to how we process and store data. In this talk, I will give an overview of…

Golden, CO 80401 United States
+ Google Map
Free, Lunch Provided

Variable Density TBMs and the Related Considerations Variable Density TBMs are used in more and more projects around the world. As they offer unique capabilities for face support, tunneling in extremely difficult ground conditions becomes safer. The lecture discussed the different mechanics of face support and the technical means to realize them. A number of international projects are introduced as well as the different TBM concepts which have been deployed.

Michael Schneider National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Abstract: Neuromorphic computing promises to dramatically improve the efficiency of certain computational tasks, such as perception and decision making. While software and specialized hardware implementations of neural networks have made tremendous progress, both implementations are still many orders of magnitude less energy efficient than the human brain. This talk will introduce the current state of neuromorphic computing and discuss the recent hardware advances that have bolstered the progress of machine learning. I…

Jennifer Druhan, University of Illinois 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Isotopic Reactive Transport: Unraveling Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Systems Abstract: Water is a basic necessity for life, and exerts a primary control on virtually all geological, chemical and biological processes occurring at or near the Earth’s surface. Because these water-rock-life interactions take place at interfaces, both fluid composition and the physical and chemical structure of porous media must be treated as coevolving phenomena.  Such complex and interrelated processes can hinder both interpretation and…

Maxime Brodeur University of Notre Dame Abstract: The atomic nucleus is a quantum mechanical object that aims at reaching its minimum energy state through various possible types of transitions mediated by fundamental forces of nature. One of the most common type of these radioactive transition, the beta decay, is governed by the weak interaction, one of three interactions included in the Standard Model of particle physics. In my talk I will show how the study of a special class of…

Kurtis Burmeister, University of the Pacific 241 Berthoud Hall,  4-5PM Topic: Welcome to Jurassic Arc: Insights from a Remarkably Preserved Sierra Nevadan Remnant Abstract: The Sierra Nevada are best known for breath-taking exposures of granitic rocks in places like Yosemite Valley, Kings Canyon, and the Tahoe Basin. These rocks are part of the Sierra Nevada batholith, which is part of a massive granitic backbone that spans much of the length of western North America. These granitic rocks offer us interesting glimpses into how…

Dmitri Kulik, Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: GEMS for Geochemical Modeling of Fluid-rock Interaction and Radioactive Waste Disposal Abstract: Geochemical systems usually consist of aqueous, gaseous and many possible mineral phases, including solid solutions and/or sorption. Their evolution often involves reactive transport phenomena, represented at any given time point by local- and partial equilibrium states, understanding and prediction of which requires computer-aided thermodynamic modeling. GEMS is a geochemical modeling software based on Gibbs Energy Minimization (GEM) and developed…

Ana Maria Rey University of Colorado, Physics Department Abstract: Understanding the behavior of interacting electrons in solids or liquids is at the heart of modern quantum science and necessary for technological advances. However, the complexity of their interactions generally prevents us from coming up with an exact mathematical description of their behavior. Precisely engineered ultracold gases are emerging as a powerful tool for unraveling these challenging physical problems. In this talk, I will present recent developments at JILA on using…
