Since June 2023, 9 new members
have joined MAUVE:
Yago Ascasibar (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), Amy Attwater (ICRAR/UWA), Sreeja S. Kartha and Ujjwal Krishnan (Christ University), Tutku Kolcu (Liverpool John Moores University),
Andrei Ristea (ICRAR-UWA), Kristine Spekkens (Royal Military College of Canada and Queen's University), Jiayi Sun (McMaster University)
Sabine Thater (University of Vienna) — welcome all to the team!
With the survey activities and science exploitation ramping up next year, we strongly encourage all team members to make sure that they have access to our MAUVE wiki
. There you can find information on how to download our science-ready data cubes, science projects, all major conference presentations delivered so far by the team and the progress report that we submitted to ESO in November (look for the "Resources" tab on the wiki). The progress report is going to be particularly interesting for new members to see where we are and have a glimpse of some of the science that we are already working on. If you realise that you do not have access to our wiki, please follow the instructions in the #resources channel on our Slack.
Congratulations to Adam Watts and team for submitting the very first MAUVE paper to MNRAS
: "A 6 kpc bipolar outflow launched from NGC 4383, one of the most HI-rich galaxies in the Virgo cluster." The figure below shows the galaxy and its outflow. A copy of the paper can be found on our wiki.
We plan on starting monthly MAUVE science team meetings
in early 2024. These are meant to be informal, online meetings to share preliminary results and discuss exciting science, to allow the team to engage with ongoing work and contribute early on to future publications. Stay tuned for more information in January 2024. If you are thinking about proposing a MAUVE project, please fill in the form on the wiki (where you can also specify if you will need VERTICO
Moving on to conferences, initial MAUVE results have been presented in several forums in 2023: New views on feedback & the baryon cycle in galaxies
(Healesville, Australia, July); 2023 ACAMAR workshop: Gas in galaxies
(Perth, Australia, July); Galaxy transformation across space and time
(3rd Australia-ESO meeting; Canberra, Australia, September); and A journey through galactic environments
(Porto Ercole, Italy, September).
Looking forward to 2024, there are already several interesting conferences lined up
. Jiayi Sun will be presenting MAUVE and his ALMA program at the 243rd AAS meeting
in just a few weeks, and Luca will highlight MAUVE at The physical processes shaping the stellar and gaseous histories of galaxies
, which will take place in Pisa, Italy, in the week of May 27-31 2024. Lastly, both MAUVE PIs are planning to attend the IAU General Assembly
in Cape Town, August 6-15 2024 (the deadline for early registration is March 1st
2024). We hope to see many of you there in person, and some exciting MAUVE talks!
