PATT Linked Grant for observational astrophysics at QUB: 2008 - 2010

Lead Research Organisation: Queen's University of Belfast
Department Name: Sch of Mathematics and Physics

Abstract

Our proposal seeks to renew the PATT Linked Grant at Queen's University Belfast. This award will cover our travel and subsistence costs to both STFC and non-STFC observing facilities. The major topics of observational astrophysics research to be covered by the PATT Linked Grant include: - the study of both Population I and evolved OB-type stars in our own and other galaxies; - investigations of supernovae and the end stages of stellar evolution; - high temporal, spatial and spectral resolution observations of the solar atmosphere and those of other cool stars; - studies of solar system bodies, including comets and asteroids; - astrochemistry, including that of interstellar and circumstellar clouds; - investigations of planetary nebulae; - multiwavelength studies of the interstellar medium, in particular high velocity clouds; - followup observations of objects detected by the SuperWASP instrument.
