Workshop: Precision SSA

The second workshop of the GNOSIS programme took place on 9th July 2020, hosted virtually by the University of Warwick. The workshop, entitled “Precision SSA”, featured a wide range of talks from members of the observational and modelling communities. Please see below for output material.
