O Lado Escuro do Eclipse

Observatório Astronómico de Lisboa
Ciclo de colóquios no âmbito da Exposição E3 - Einstein, Eddington e o Eclipse "O lado escuro do Eclipse"

Nas celebrações do eclipse solar total de 1919, aproveite observações astronómicas, visitas guiadas a um observatório histórico, e uma palestra pública dedicada ao lado escuro do Universo.

O dia 29 de maio marca o centenário das observações do eclipse solar total de 1919, em Sobral (Brasil), e na ilha do Príncipe (São Tomé e Príncipe), observações de que resultou a confirmação de uma das previsões da teoria da relatividade geral de Einstein.

A descoberta de inesperados constituintes do Universo – a matéria escura e a energia escura – fazem hoje repensar a teoria da gravitação de Einstein, que em todos os outros aspetos tem somado sucessos atrás de sucessos. Ao lado escuro do Universo é dedicada a palestra de Tiago Barreiro, do Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) e professor na Universidade Lusófona - “O Lado Escuro do Eclipse”.

Todas as atividades são de acesso gratuito, no entanto, a palestra é limitada ao número de lugares disponíveis, e as visitas guiadas ao edifício requerem o registo prévio, realizado no local.

Organizado pelo IA, este evento faz parte da exposição E3 - Einstein, Eddington e o Eclipse, enquadrada no projeto Eddington @ Sundy: 100 anos depois.

The course SoilEco aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

In this course, we promote a multidisciplinary approach presenting the most recent findings on the topic and challenging the traditional way of considering symbiotic associations as exceptions and not as the rule.

The goal of this course is to provide to the participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including ecological and social aspects.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

This course introduces the field of island biogeography, a discipline that has long influenced other research areas such as macroecology, community ecology, evolution and conservation biology.

Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge – and that can be achieved for example by a conscious use of the communication tools at their disposal and a better articulation with journalists, among other means.

This course aims at providing students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

This course aims at providing students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. It also includes an introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

This is a mostly practical course offering an overview on different community ecology and macroecological methods and software. These will include all steps of a research project, from the optimal sampling of communities to process inference from large-scale patterns of taxon, phylogenetic and functional diversity.

This course aims to walk through the grounds of modern botany studies, covering subjects that have been excluded from most academic curricula.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to predict the three-dimensional structure of nucleic acid and proteins from their sequence and use the acquired knowledge to improve or create new methodologies in molecular biology research and diagnostics.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
