The process of how stars have formed, and still form, from the gas reservoirs of galaxies is among the most important questions in understanding the Universe as we know it. Also our home galaxy—the Milky Way—continuously gives birth to new stars; studying Milky Way’s star formation regions is our best hope to understand the process. In the very heart of these studies is a simple question: How is the star-forming gas distributed? </p> <p class="chalmersElement-P">On the one hand, the gas distribution decides where and when the new stars form. On the other hand, it carries fingerprints of the physics involved in the formation, which enables diagnosing the process. In this docent lecture, I will descri​be how our research group has made progress in this question by mapping the star-forming gas in the Milky Way across the various size-scales relevant for star formation. </p> <p class="chalmersElement-P">I will also discuss the near-future and the next important steps in addressing the question. </p> <div>​</div></div> <div><a href="" style="outline:-webkit-focus-ring-color auto 5px">Zoom link to the lecture</a>.

The purpose of this conference series is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference, around which the sessions will be built, include:</p><ul><li>​<span style="font-size:14px"><span style="background-color:initial">BECCS</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Biospheric storage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Cross-cutting sessions</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Direct air capture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Enhanced weathering</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Modeling</span></li> <li><span style="background-color:initial">Ocean alkalization</span></li></ul> <span></span> <div><span style="font-size:14px"></span><span></span><div><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>Background</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.</span></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial;font-size:14px"></span><strong>Read more and sign up to the conference:</strong><br /><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions​</a><br /></div>
