Mapping the Galaxy and Nearby Galaxies, Hardback Book

Mapping the Galaxy and Nearby Galaxies Hardback

Edited by Keiichi Wada, Francoise Combes

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings series


Readers with any kind of an interest in astronomy will find this work fascinating, detailing as it does the proceedings of the symposium of the same name held in Japan in 2006.

The symposium focused on mapping the interstellar media and other components in galactic disks, bulges, halos, and central regions of galaxies.

Thanks to recent progress in observations using radio interferometers and optical/infrared telescopes in ground and space, our knowledge on structures of our Galaxy and nearby galaxies has been growing for the last decade.
