Tue-Wed Oct 19-20

Met with Matthias Dietrich & Smita Mathur about observing proposal to monitor bright BAL quasars.

Discussed paper on variable BAL quasar at Astro Coffee; general interest among AGN folk in the paper and in searching for similar objects in light-curve datasets.

Skype meeting with my grad student Jesse Rogerson.

Isolated, downloaded and examined 135 SDSS-III repeat spectra of BAL quasars. Found one new case of dramatic variability!

1 comment:

  1. is the dramatic variability in another overlapping trough BAL quasar?
