Extreme Precision RV Foundational Science Seminar
April 26th, 2022 [10a – 2p PDT]

This seminar will feature the PIs from NASA’s 2021 ROSES call on ‘EPRV Foundation Science’ which focused on new pathways to mitigating stellar variability in (E)PRV data. Each speaker will describe the scope of their project and provide updates on their teams progress in the first year+ of effort. You will find more details below, including the program schedule, presentation abstracts, and connection information.
