The RAS runs, sponsors, or otherwise supports, a wide range of meetings, including a major programme of regular monthly meetings
held October to May covering all aspects of astronomy (including cosmology, astrobiology, astrochemistry, astroparticle physics, computational astrophysics, etc
.) and solid-earth geophysics (including geophysical fluid dynamics, planetary sciences, solar-terrestrial physics, etc
.), planetary sciences, and solar-terrestrial physics.
In 2008/9, these monthly meetings will be held in the lecture theatres of the Geological Society
and the new RAS lecture theatre,
all at Burlington House. In April, the meeting is subsumed into the annual week- long RAS National Astronomy Meeting
which in 2010 will be in Glasgow. The standard format is a pair of Specialist Discussion meetings (except in May when, to accommodate the AGM, there is just one ), followed by a more general Astronomy & Geophysics ('Ordinary') meeting, open to the general public.
Webcasts and podcasts are available
for many recent meetings, as are alerts
of forthcoming meetings.
