POCA

A Partnership in Observational and Computational Astronomy

Year 1 Research, Education and Training Activities

Year 1 of the project has largely been devoted to getting the research, education and outreach components of program organized and operational. In Year 2 and beyond we anticipate making contributions to the field. These will include a better understanding of the role magnetic fields play in star formation (Mayo) as well as advancing our understanding of RV Tauri stars (Cash, Howell, Walter). Contributions from research at Clemson (Leising) including SCSU student participation is also anticipated in the near future. Contributions in education are also anticipated in the future (Smith) as we implement and disseminate the educational materials developed in Year 1.
