Cool stars, stellar systems, and the sun : proceedings of the Third Cambridge Workshop on Cool Stars, Stellar Systems, and the Sun, held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, October 5-7, 1983 by Sallie L Baliunas( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research on the solar-stellar system has been triggered by a host of recent observational data, in particular from space based observations. For this conference the major topics selected centered on new measurement capabilities (magnetic fields and infrared, with specific emphasis on the new IRAS results), important classes of stars (F stars, M dwarfs and giants, and pre-main sequence stars), and interesting unanswered questions (the nature of nonthermal phenomena, heating processes, angular momentum evolution, and the existence and cause of the corona/wind dividing line). Each section is opened by two or more invited lectures aimed at a wide audience, including graduate students, and continues with some research papers. The proceedings also record the two general discussions on the role of magnetic fields in cool star atmospheres and the role of monitoring programs for studies of cool stars (see also Lecture Notes in Physics Vol. 292)
A combined MGII/CAII survey of stellar magnetic activity in the solar neighborhood : final report for the period 15 December 1993 through 30 August 1996 by Sallie L Baliunas( Book )

Astronomy by Jay M Pasachoff( Visual )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have been beguiled by the heavens above, seeking to divine the meanings in the stars and planets overhead. Where did it all begin? Where will it end? How were the stars formed? Is there anybody else out there, or are we alone? One of the leading astronomers studying those questions is Dr. Sallie Baliunas
Persistent sub-yearly chromospheric variations in lower main-sequence stars : [Tau] Boö and [alpha] Com by Davesh Maulik( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From astronomy to viruses, you'll find their narratives full of genius, personal insight and enlightenment. A tribute to mankind's ingenuity and boundless curiosity
States of fear : science or politics?( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is environmental debate today, including global warming, bio-technology, and other issues, based on science or politics? Are popular accounts of such issues rooted in science or phantom risks? Are government policies focusing on the trivial while ignoring the real, and in the process wasting limited resources, crippling human innovation to address true dangers, and inviting tyranny?"--Program description
Essential science for teachers( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A professional development course for K-6 science teachers that provides in-class activities, real-world examples and interviews with scientists related to physical science concepts which teachers need in today's standards-based curricula. Each episode is one hour in length

The Particle nature of matter : solids, liquids and gases( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A professional development course for primary and middle school teachers. What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the particle model can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.

Astronomia : Astronomy( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Muito antes de Galileu Galilei construir o primeiro telescópio, a humanidade sempre se viu seduzida pelo alto firmamento, procurando desvendar os significados das estrelas e dos planetas. Mas essas observações parecem ter causado mais perguntas que respostas. Onde tudo começou? Quando tudo vai terminar? Como as estrelas se formaram? Há mais alguém neste universo - ou estamos mesmo sozinhos? Astrônomo no Centro Harvard-Smthsoniano de Astrofísica e diretora do Instituto Monte Wilson, Sallie Baliunas responderá algumas dessas inquietantes perguntas - e talvez suscite o argumento de outras, estimulando a curiosidade científica e busca pelo conhecimento dos leitores de Isto É Grandes Temas

The Variability of Sunlike Stars on Decadal Timescales( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors have successfully combined photometric observations of about 30 sun-like stars from Mount Wilson, Lowell, and Fairborn Observatories to extend their joint time series from 12 to 17 years. The stability of the statistical relationships between chromospheric and brightness variability, derived previously, suggests that the full range of variation on the decadal time-scale has probably now been observed for most of their program stars. Young, active stars become fainter as their chromospheric Ca II HK emission increases, while older, less active stars, such as the Sun, become brighter as their HK emission increases. The Sun's photometric variation still appears to be somewhat small in amplitude at present, compared to other stars in this sample with similar mean chromospheric activity
