Present and Future Large Radio Surveys of the Extreme Universe

March 24 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM CET

Transient radio emission is a fundamental tracer and physical probe of the most extreme and transient events in the universe.


In this talk, Rob Fender will discuss a number of recent developments with existing radio telescopes, including:

  • the ThunderKAT image-plane transients programme on MeerKAT,
  • the first citizen-science project to search for commensal radio transients,
  • first radio detections of ‘VHE GRBs’ detected by ground-based Cherenkov arrays,
  • the possible association of a Tidal Disruption Event with an Ice Cube astrophysical neutrino.

Professor Fender will conclude by discussing the prospects for the next-generation of radio telescope arrays, and why we should consider a dedicated transient monitoring array for the southern hemisphere.
