2010 LMA Summer Internships

  • Karina Alvarez : proto-planetary disks in binary systems (Hannah, Peter)

Karina, together with Hannah, have presented a poster Planetary Formation in Binary Systems at NCADW-III last month. She is also working on understanding properties of pure N-body disks around a heavy star, perhaps expanding this to SPH disks. Here are some links to her work: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~kalvarez

  • Alex Contreras : high-Z gas (Alberto)

Alex is analyzing GBT data. His webpage is http://www.astro.umd.edu/~alcontre

  • Santiago Cortes: CARMA web pages (Peter)

Santiago is working on the CARMA web pages (http://www.mmarray.org) as well as the CedarFlat (http://cedarflat.mmarray.org) webpages. For this we have a local working copy , maintained under CVS, in his own public area: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~scortes/carmaweb. A better scheme for organizing pictures, a new picture of the day, and a new CARMA Higlights section from the sidebar have been worked on. http://www.astro.umd.edu/~scortes/carmaweb/CARMA_Highlights/index1.html

  • Chester Lam : Finding gas clumps in interstellar space (Eve, Lee, Marc)

Chester is studying algorithms how to best identify clumps in 2D/3D maps/cubes. His report is here: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~clam/

  • Dalton Wu : Updated Carma Correlator tool (CGS) (Marc)

Dalton is working on the CARMA Correlator Graphical Setup tool (http://cedarflat.mmarray.org/observing/tools/CGS.html), fixing a few old deficiencies and adding new functionality for the new correlator. Dalton's working version where you test out his greatest latest is here: http://carma.astro.umd.edu/carma/observing/tools/CGS.html . His other material is on his home page http://www.astro.umd.edu/~dwu . Dalton's 8-17-10 presentation: http://www.astro.umd.edu/~dwu/CGSppt2.ppt
