SOFIA measurements of Nearby Galaxies and the Central Molecular Zone of the Milky Way
Juergen Stutzki (Uni Koeln)
Thomas Wilson (MPIfR, Bonn))
Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 14:00-18:30
The scientific goals
The SOFIA data are from the completed “joint impact proposals” on M51 and the Central Molecular Zone (both complete velocity resolved maps in [CII]), several GREAT and FIFI-LS observations of a number of individual galaxies (M 82, M51, IC 342, IC10, NGC6946 and the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds) and the recently started survey program of a large sample of nearby galaxies. These results, in combination with maps of the carbon monoxide molecule, atomic carbon, radio continuum and where possible, optical images are compared with models of galactic evolution and to determine the star formation rates, element abundances, ionization state of the ISM and the details of stellar processing.
Scope of the Splinter Meeting
The splinter will provide a platform for the collaborators of the above projects, including PhD students, to present first results and to stimulated the interest of the larger community in these results.
