CHARA Summer Seminar 2020


WebEx Virtual Meetings

Wednesdays at 4 pm EDT = 1 pm PDT.


We are hosting a series of eight WebEx seminars in June and July, 2020 on observing with the CHARA Array interferometer.  The goal is to present a practical introduction on how to observe and analyze CHARA observations.  We hope that graduate students may find these helpful, but participation is open to anyone.  Each seminar will run for 60 minutes with the last 10 minutes reserved for Q&A.  Please contact Doug Gies if you are interested in joining the sessions.
