Nucleosynthesis – origins and impacts

Start Date
End Date


An RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by Dr Alex Murphy (Edinburgh)* and Professor Sean Ryan (Hertfordshire)
* Contact:


A variety of processes occurring in a diverse range of astrophysical sites have resulted in the chemical abundances observed today. Research in this area is extremely diverse, including for example gamma-ray satellite observations of short-lived isotopes in stellar ejecta, anomalous isotopic abundances in pre-solar grains, and detailed nuclear reaction cross section measurements at astrophysically important energies. This meeting aims to bring these disparate research communities together, fostering a more coherent strategy for future research in this highly interdisciplinary area.

Tea and coffee will be available from 10:00 and again after the meeting at 15:30.
