Noites no Observatório - Um Universo nada trivial

Por João Lin Yun (IA - Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço / Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa).

Em Ciência, são frequentes as ideias erradas que se tornaram crenças populares quase generalizadas. O tamanho da Lua varia ao longo de uma noite? Faz mais calor no Verão porque a Terra está mais próxima do Sol?

Num formato interativo, nas Noites no Observatório deste mês, venha testar os seus conhecimentos, em família ou em equipa, e descubra aspetos interessantes do que vemos no céu.

Depois da palestra, haverá um pequeno espetáculo de música e efeitos na cúpula do Planetário, e decorrerão observações astronómicas em contínuo ao longo da noite, até às 24:00, se as condições meteorológicas o permitirem.

Entrada livre, mediante inscrição prévia.


Nota Biográfica: João Lin Yun é professor da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa e investigador no Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço. É doutorado em Astronomia e Física pela Universidade de Boston e tem-se preocupado com os aspetos humanos da Ciência.

Para além do seu trabalho científico e pedagógico, é um apaixonado pelas manifestações culturais e sociológicas dos povos. Observa com curiosidade a espécie humana, cujo destino se tornou coletivo e global.

This meeting is a forum for scientists of all academic levels, (from master to principal investigators), to present their work and discuss, fostering new ideas and collaborations. We invite researchers from all over the world to participate and submit their work.

Desde o início de 2020 que somos bombardeados, através da comunicação social, com informações sobre o novo coronavírus humano - SARS-CoV-2 - que provoca a síndrome respiratória aguda grave. Nunca se comunicou tanto, em tempo real, um tema científico, mas será que já vimos todas as nossas perguntas sobre este tema respondidas?

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 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.

O evento pretende juntar técnicos, investigadores, estudantes, produtores, industriais e demais agentes da fileira, contribuindo para a atualização de dados sobre o setor e a partilha de conhecimentos sobre as potencialidades da flora portuguesa, para além, das condições edafoclimáticas nacionais que potenciam produtos de elevada qualidade.

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.

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.
