When modelling galaxy evolution, star formation rate has shown to be overpredicted without the process of feedback, which prevents star formation. To improve the models of galaxy formation, different feedback processes, e.g. feedback for an Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), needs to be studied individually. The galaxy NGC 1068 houses a starburst ring at a radius of $\sim3$ kpc and an AGN which have been found to quench star formation up to a kpc-scale around the center. The close distance of 15.5 Mpc makes it possible to resolve different feedback effects in NGC 1068 using the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA). Physical conditions in the molecular gas were studied using VLA to probe temperatures using molecular transitions in NH$_3$ as thermometer. Metastable inversion transitions (1,1) through (6,6) were detected presenting a distinct increase in temperature towards the AGN compared to other locations such as bar and spiral arms. A general AGN rotation temperature of $157.0\substack{+78.5 \\ -39.3}$ K was determined while rotation temperatures elsewhere were found to be $\lesssim20-40$ K. The NH$_3$ ortho- to para species ratio towards the AGN suggest the NH$_3$ gas was formed in a cold environment of $\lesssim20$ K. The present day warm environment around the AGN suggests it indeed being the AGN that heats the ISM surrounding it. </span><span style="background-color:initial">​</span></p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation-Ingrid-Ingemarsson.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation-Ingrid-Ingemarsson.aspxMaster thesis presentation Ingrid Ingemarsson<p>Online</p><p>​Retrieving precipitation over Brazil​</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Ingrid Ingemarsson at the master’s programme Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science​</span><span style="background-color:initial"></span><span style="background-color:initial">presents her master’s thesis work “Retrieving precipitation over Brazil - A Quantile Regression Neural Networks approach ”, at the Department of Space, Earth and Environment.</span><div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">Opponent: Sara Nordin Hällgren​</span><span style="background-color:initial"> </span><br /></div> <a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/62111769813">Join the presentation via Zoom</a><span style="background-color:initial">.

Geostationary weather satellites, as opposed to other measuring methods, provide high-resolution information covering large regions. The carried sensors can not, however, measure precipitation directly but are restricted to capturing cloud top temperatures (in IR radiation). Earlier work present a range of models that aim to relate these geostationary observations to precipitation, including simple regression as well as more elaborate machine learning techniques. In this thesis we aim at predicting a posterior distribution instead of a single precipitation value for each set of cloud top temperatures. To achieve this, we make use of Quantile Regression Neural Networks (QRNNs), a supervised machine learning approach. </span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">The two main questions asked are as follows: Can this deep learning method be used to improve upon algorithms currently in operation? and Can spatial information be used to improve the retrieval? The models are trained on GOES-16 IR data over Brazil pared with a precipitation product from the GPM Core Observatory. Our results on held-out test data show that it is possible to model the precipitation distribution using a QRNN. Additionally, a better performance is observed when utilizing spatial information than without. The QRNN models also show promising results on an independent rain gauge dataset where they are compared against the currently-in-operation Hydro-Estimator.</span><span style="background-color:initial">​</span><br /></div></span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/ict/calendar/Pages/Act-Sustainable-Can-automated-fact-checkers-clean-up-the-mess.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/ict/calendar/Pages/Act-Sustainable-Can-automated-fact-checkers-clean-up-the-mess.aspxAct Sustainable: Can automated fact checkers clean up the mess?<p>Studenternas Hus, Götabergsgatan 17, Göteborg</p><p>The Act Sustainable week is soon up and running.
