El satèl·lit PAZ demostra un nou sistema de mesura de pluges intenses
22/01/2019
Un equip d’investigadors de l’Institut d’Estudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC) i de l’Institut de Ciències de l’Espai (ICE) del Consell Superior d’Investigacions Científiques (CSIC) ha analitzat les dades obtingudes a l’experiment amb senyals GPS que s’està realitzant a bord del satèl·lit espanyol d’observació de la Terra PAZ, llançat el mes de febrer del 2018, i ha confirmat que els senyals enregistrats són sensibles a les precipitacions intenses. Els resultats apareixen publicats a la revista Geophysical Research Letters.

EoS in neutron stars - recent results on cooling and tidal deformabilities
12/04/2019 - 00/00/0000
We present our recent results on cooling and tidal deformabilities of neutron stars using a recently developed hadronic equation-of-state (EoS) for the neutron star interior.
White dwarfs in the Gaia era
05/04/2019 - 00/00/0000
The vast majority of stars will end, or have ended, their lives in the form of a white dwarf. These objects have the average size of the Earth; however, they can be more massive than the Sun. This makes white dwarfs to be extremely dense and to have exceptional properties. In this talk, we will study the physical characteristics of these exotic objects and we will see how the data provided by the Gaia satellite is helping us to significantly increase our understanding of white dwarfs.
