Galactoseismology: From the Milky Way to XUV Disks
PI: Sukanya Chakrabarti
Award: NASA NNX17AK90G Dates: 05/08/2017—05/07/2020; Funds: $186,000

Description

We will investigate disturbances in the galactic disk of the Milky Way and galaxies in the Local Volume to characterize the perturbers and the dark matter distribution. We will also correlate the disturbances with the galaxy colors and SED to make a direction connection to observables.
