Tai-Yin Huang, associate professor of physics at Penn State Lehigh Valley, will present a talk on "Atmospheric Airglow" at the next Faculty Forum lecture at 12:30 p.m. on December 9 in room 302 at the campus in Center Valley. This lecture is free and open to the public.

 

Huang will discuss airglow intensity variations under three rather different situations – gravity waves, lightning, and global warming. These studies were conducted during her sabbatical at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan in 2009-2010.

 

"Atmospheric airglow has been known to be very sensitive to the change of the environment. A change in the gas concentrations or temperature can oftentimes cause a detectable change in the brightness of airglow intensity," said Huang.
