Cold Spotz/Chary

Cold Spotz/Chary

Cold Spotz: Using the submillimeter wavelength all-sky map generated by the Planck satellite to classify 4000 previously unidentified radio sources into the following categories: extragalactic radio sources, star-forming galaxies, stars within a dust shell, cold stellar cores, or asteroids.

Year(s) participated: 2012


C-WAYS/Rebull

C-WAYS/Rebull

Cool, Wise, And Young Stars (C-WAYS): Using Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) infrared images to find optically enshrouded stars that are in the process of formation in the bright rimmed clouds BRC 27, BRC 34, and BRC 38 which are clouds of gas being illuminated by other nearby, newly formed (but un-enshrouded) stars.

Year(s) participated: 2012


HR4AGN/Gorjian

HR4AGN/Gorjian

Hertzsprung-Russel diagram for Active Galactic Nuclei (HR4AGN): Using space and ground based ultraviolet, optical, and infrared images to find a correlation between the color and luminosity of gas emission and dust emission around supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies.

Year(s) participated: 2012


Independent Research 2012

Independent Research 2012

This virtual team collects all independent research presented in 2012, and done by NITARP or Spitzer alumni with students outside of a formal NITARP team. Two different teams presented posters in 2012.

Year(s) participated: 2012


NITARP management, 2009-2013

NITARP management, 2009-2013

This virtual team consists of people who run and support NITARP in various ways.

Year(s) participated: 2012


SOFIA/Werner and Sahai

SOFIA/Werner and Sahai

Using Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) images to study the planetary nebula NGC 7027 to better understand the final stages of life for stars like our Sun.

Year(s) participated: 2012


UBOKO/Ciardi and Howell

UBOKO/Ciardi and Howell

Using multiwavelength data to characterize Ultra Blue Objects for Kepler Observing (UBOKO). Characterizing the identities of these sources will facilitate further study and will be used to propose future observations with the Kepler Space Telescope.

Year(s) participated: 2012
