Webinar Overview:

Part 4 of the Astrophysics Empowered by the EHT Webinar Series

This session covers how and why uncertainties in plasma ‘microphysics’ affect our ability to predict observational signatures of BH accretion in EHT sources as well as discussing some of the physical ingredients that are likely critical for setting the temperature of the radiating plasma in EHT sources.

Facilitator: Eliot Quataert, Princeton
