C-CWEL/Rebull

C-CWEL/Rebull

C-CWEL (Continuing Cool WISE ExpLoration of BRC 38): Continuing on some work started by the C-WAYS team last year, this team is using Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) infrared images to search for newly forming stars in bright rimmed cloud (BRC) 38.

Year(s) participated: 2013


CM4Seyferts/Gorjian

CM4Seyferts/Gorjian

CM4Seyferts (Color-Magnitude for Seyferts): Using ultraviolet images from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) satellite and optical images and spectra from the ground based Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to find a correlation between the color and luminosity of the hot gas around supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies.

Year(s) participated: 2013


Independent Research 2013

Independent Research 2013

This virtual team collects all independent research presented in 2013, and done by NITARP or Spitzer alumni with students outside of a formal NITARP team. In 2013, we have one article in The Physics Teacher, and one poster on young stars.

Year(s) participated: 2013


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: 2013


SHIPs/Ali

SHIPs/Ali

The goal of SHIPs (Searching Herschel Images for Protostars) is to find and identify stars in the earliest phases of formation in NGC 281, a.k.a. "the pac-man nebula".  These stars will help us understand the history of the star formation process in that region.

Year(s) participated: 2013


They Might Be Giants/Ciardi and Howell

They Might Be Giants/Ciardi and Howell

They Might Be Giants are using data from the Kepler mission to classify the brightness changes of giant stars in an effort to understand how the observed brightness variations of giant stars may relate to the different stages of giant star evolution.

Year(s) participated: 2013


We're back from the Jan 2017 AAS and we had a grand time!
