SOFIA Archival Research Program - what you need to know

Event date
-
Location
Online
Event Type

The SOFIA Archival Research Program (SARP) is now open for proposals to fund research projects primarily using SOFIA data. The purpose of this program is to encourage the use of available SOFIA archival data and to realize the full potential of the SOFIA archive. In this webinar we will present the mechanics of the open funding call, and highlight a selection of public datasets.

Please join us at 10:00 a.m. PDT through Webex using this link.

Location
Pasadena Convention Center - Ballroom C
Event Type

The US-German Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), is currently operating in its 9th observing cycle, and continues to enable and produce high-impact science results ranging from Earth studies to high-redshift galaxies. SOFIA continues to be the only observatory that provides community access to the mid- and far-infrared wavelength range, preparing the astronomical community both scientifically and technologically for the ambitious roadmap set forth by the Astro2020 Decadal report.

240 AAS Splinter Session: Mid and Far-IR observations: leveraging science across the spectrum

Pasadena Convention Center - Conference Room 204
Event Type

Multi-wavelength observations can open up new and unique comparisons between tracers and physical processes. For instance, while mid infrared line observations typically access molecular vibrational transitions, far infrared and (sub-)mm wave lines probe the rotational excitation ladder. Similarly, mid-to-far infrared continuum observations (intensity and polarization) probe the hot and warm dust, respectively, while (sub-)mm wave data are most sensitive to the cold dust.

Lars Bonne will present his recent PhD thesis 'The formation and dispersal of dense gas in star forming regions" (University of Bordeaux), which received the USRA prize for best SOFIA thesis. He will describe kinematic studies towards both low- and high-mass star forming regions that cover a wide density range, in particular detailing the Musca and DR21 clouds. The dynamics in these regions with different star formation activities show signatures that point to dense filament formation by the same mechanism i.e.
