“They let you in now?”

Much to everybody’s surprise, they let some astronomers into the recently concluded Joint Statistical Meeting at Salt Lake City, UT. There were two three astrostat sessions: [#45 on Probing the Universe with Nonparametric Methods,] #367 on Bayesian Applications in Astronomy and Physics (chaired by David van Dyk), and #411 on Image Analysis in Solar- and Astro-physics (chaired by Yaming Yu and Thomas Lee). Both [of the latter] sessions were dominated by presentations from CHASC collaborators.

Summarizing Coronal Spectra

Hyunsook and I have preliminary findings (work done with the help of the X-Atlas group) on the efficacy of using spectral proxies to classify low-mass coronal sources, put up as a poster at the XGratings workshop. The workshop has a “poster haiku” session, where one may summarize a poster in a single transparency and speak on it for a couple of minutes. I cannot count syllables, so I wrote a limerick instead: Continue reading ‘Summarizing Coronal Spectra’ »
