Brief description

Dr. George Hobbs' main research is for the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array (PPTA) project. This is using the Parkes radio telescope to observe 20 millisecond pulsars. A careful analysis of these observations should allow 1) study of the existence of low-frequency gravitational waves, 2) identification of irregularities in the terrestrial time standard and 3) improvement to the solar system ephemeris.
