A PATT Linked Grant for Leeds

Lead Research Organisation: University of Leeds
Department Name: Physics and Astronomy

Abstract

Astronomers often go personally to telescopes to conduct their observations. To win observing time on a world-class telescope is no mean feat, as astronomers often propose so many ideas to use these telescopes that there should be more than 5 times more nights in a year than there actually are to execute these ideas. In practice, only the best proposals will be granted time. This proposal requests funding for Leeds astronomers to travel to these world-class facilities and conduct their observations.

Description The grant is to fund travel and subsistence of Leeds astronomers to conduct (competitively won) observations at the world's leading telescopes.

The research carried out feeds directly into Leeds efforts funded by STFC Rolling and consolidated grants awards and mainly concern understanding the process of the formation of stars and planets.
Exploitation Route Based on our results, science has progressed, and the publications and associated citations are the main contribution to the field.
