2011: Star Formation in Bright-Rimmed Clouds

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2011, is working with at least one bright-rimmed cloud (BRC) to characterize the young star population that might be found there. Much of the background information found below for the IC 2118, Lynds, and CG4 teams also applies to this team as well.


2011: Team Red Shift

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2011, is working with multi-wavelength data to study active galactic nuclei (AGN).

2011: Period Pontificators

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2011, is working with Kepler data.


2010: Star Formation in CG4

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2010 (one of the first under the NITARP banner), is working with multi-wavelength observations of CG4 to characterize the young star population that might be found there. Much of the background information found above for the IC 2118 and Lynds teams also applies to this team as well.

2008: Star Formation in Lynds Clouds

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which ran from Jan 2008 - Jan 2009, observed two Lynds clouds to characterize the young star population that might be found there. Much of the background information found above for the IC 2118 team also applies to this team as well.


2005-2007: Young Stars in IC 2118

Year One main team page and Year Two main team page. (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

The IC 2118 team is working to characterize the young star population of a small cloud near Rigel that is (probably) part of the greater Orion star forming ecosystem. We have used about 12.5 hours of Spitzer time (!) to map a large region of the cloud with both IRAC and MIPS. We have taken several posters to AAS meetings -- see the posters and handouts page. We have obtained a lot of optical data in support of this analysis. We are working on writing up the journal article.

Please see our quick introduction to IC 2118 and more lengthy introduction to IC 2118. You may also be interested in general information on studying young stars.


2010: Luminous Data Miners

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team web page (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2010 (one of the first under the NITARP banner), is working with multi-wavelength data to study active galactic nuclei (AGN).


2010: Variability of the Mid-IR Sky

CLICK HERE for current research activities associated with this project.

main team web page. (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

This team, which started in Jan 2010 (one of the first under the NITARP banner), is examining Spitzer IRAC data from the archive for fields which have been looked at for many hours or longer. They plan to measure photometry for all point sources in the FOV and put together many many light curves. They will then explore 1) the variability of the mid-IR sky, 2) the interesting types of objects that they find and 3) the comparison of the interesting ones to 2MASS optical, x-ray etc. surveys where additional information might be available.

2005: Intergalactic Star Formation in Tidal Dwarf Galaxies of M81

main team web page. (includes abstract, proposal, people, etc.)

Please see our quick introduction to M81. You may also be interested in general information to Tidal Dwarf Galaxies.
