Speaker: Evan Skillman, UMN
Subject: Carbon

I will report on recent measurements of carbon abundances from optical recombination lines of star forming regions in the spiral galaxy M101 obtained with the Modular Double Spectrograph on the Large Binocular Telescope. These observations allow us to study the evolution of the relative abundance of carbon as a function of absolute abundance.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
