Galactic Radio Astronomy by V. Radhakrishnan (auth.), F. J. Kerr, S. C. Simonson III

By V. Radhakrishnan (auth.), F. J. Kerr, S. C. Simonson III (eds.)

'Galactic Radio Astronomy' used to be selected because the topic of this Symposium, which used to be held together with the IAU common meeting that happened in Sydney in August 1973, principally since it is a truly compatible Southern Hemisphere subject. This leads to half from the benefits of a southern situation in learning the Galaxy and partly from the lengthy organization of Australia with radio astronomy. Following the final meeting, the Symposium was once held on the Surf air Inter­ nationwide resort in Maroochydore, Queensland, from three to 7 September, 1973. The convention contributors have been successfully remoted from the remainder of the area throughout the Symposium, and the superb spring climate and geographical state of affairs ended in the improvement of an strangely reliable rapport. The Symposium was once subsidized by way of Commissions forty, 33, and 34. The Organizing Committee used to be composed of A. H. Barrett (chairman), J. E. Baldwin, D. S. Heeschen, F. J. Kerr, J. Lequeux, S. W. McCuskey, P. G. Mezger, B. Y. generators, Yu. N. Parijskij, B. J. Robinson, H. van der Laan, and H. F. Weaver. The neighborhood Committee, consisting ofB. J. Robinson, N. G. Seddon, and P. J. Kelly, taken care of the preparations in very wonderful type. The Symposium was once supported financially via the IAU, the Australian Academy o~ technology, the CSIRO department of Radiophysics, Union Carbide Australia constrained, and the technological know-how starting place for Physics in the collage of Sydney.
