The Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) observes the chromosphere and the transition region to understand how the solar atmosphere is energized. Since its launch in 2014 it has recorded more than 18,000 data sets in the Mg II h&k spectral range. Recovering the physical information from these data is crucial to answer how energy is transferred from the lower layers of the solar atmosphere to the hot corona. We will demonstrate a new technique that applies to the Mg II h&k spectra that quickly (in a few minutes) enables the recovery of the thermodynamic information within the atmosphere. This new approach is based on several machine learning and artificial intelligence methods. In this workshop we will discuss the concepts, estimated errors, and limitations of the method and, in a hands-on environment, how to implement and execute the code we have developed.

Just 10 miles east of downtown St. Louis is Cahokia-once the largest and most sophisticated pre-Columbian city north of Mexico and the largest archaeological site in America. At its heyday from 1100 to 1200 CE, Cahokia was home to some 100,000 people and covered over five square miles. Today over 100 of the giant mounds built by the Cahokians remain. We will stop at the visitor center and interpretive museum and enjoy a guided tour of the site including numerous mounds."
