    Title: Updates on the Atmospheric Properties of Pulsating Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars

    Abstract:

    Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars are a type of long-period variable star, marking the end-of-life stage for stars on the scale of the Sun. These stars experience opacity driven pulsations, driving the repeated contraction and expansion of the star. In the stellar atmosphere, the pulsations interact with mineral dusts, resulting in the mass-loss phenomenon, where material is shed from the star before becoming a white dwarf.

    Title: Ames Climate Action Plan Update

    Abstract: The Ames Climate Action Plan was adopted by the City Council last June. On January 9 the city staff presented a report of progress in the last six months. What’s in the plan? What is the city doing? What else needs to happen to move Ames towards achieving the goals set by Council in December 2021? Along with this local focus, I will review the global status of climate change through 2023.
