CG4 Proposal

This page will be used to assemble the pieces for the proposal we are writing.

CG4 Useful Links

A consolidation of all sorts of useful links, mostly culled from Luisa's email.

Previous Teams' pages

Lynds Clouds Current Research Activities and IC 2118 Current Research Activities

CG4 Spring work

This page will be used to collect information during our work in Spring.

CG4 Summer visit

This page will be used to collect logistics information about our IPAC visit. The visit is June 14-16. (NB: HOU conference at Yerkes June 20-24.)

CG4 Bigger Picture and Goals

Subject to change! Includes agenda for Summer visit.

Working with L1688

Sample analysis thread using Lynds 1688 (developed in the context of the Lynds Cloud team).

Working with CG4+SA101

An adaptation of "Working with L1688" above, with specific application to our project.

CG4 Fall Work

First draft of Science Abstract:

We used archival Spitzer data to look for new young stellar objects (YSOs) in Cometary Globule 4 (CG4) in Puppis. CG4 is approximately 1300 parsecs and one of about 30 cometary globules in the Gum Nebula, many of which are known to be forming stars. These globules are pointed generally radially outward from the center of the Vela OB2 association, which is also forming stars. CG4 is dramatic in appearance, and that has brought it to the attention of both scientists and the public. Our team used archival Spitzer InfraRed Array Camera (IRAC) and Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS) data and 2 Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) data, as well as optical data obtained by collaborators. We used infrared excess to find nine previously known YSOs and additional new YSOs in this region. We will primarily use infrared excess to find new YSOs. We used available data to attempt to determine legitimate cluster members, and to separate CG4’s YSOs from other objects with similar spectral energy distributions (SEDs). This research was made possible through the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Project (NITARP) and was funded by the Spitzer Science Center (SSC).

Please edit as you see fit.

Also, send me the names of all authors to be listed. For example, I will write the Breck team as ... Chelen Johnson, Rachel Crump, Anna Laorr, Kayla Mork, Emma Steinbergs, Sara Trautz, Elizabeth Wigley, Sally Caruso, Heather Balenger, Nina Killingstad, Taylor McCanna. We will identify schools with superscripts and a key. (See previous NITARP posters [1] for an example.)
