InterferometryDiscussionGroup 2010-2011

Meetings: Wednesdays from 10:00 - 11:00 in ER 230.

The purpose of this group is to discuss the basics, and sometimes the intricacies, of radio interferometry. The discussions are informal and are led by volunteers depending on the topic of the day.

Contact Scott Schnee (sschnee at to suggest a topic for discussion, to volunteer to lead a discussion, or to be added to the email reminder list.
