Friday 06/09:The Large Panoptic Spectroscopic Survey of Milky Way Globular Clusters and their debris

Expositor: Dr. José G. Fernández-Trincado (Universidad Católica del Norte, Chile)

Date: viernes 9 de junio, 14 hs.

Abstract: Globular Clusters (GCs) are among the most powerful cosmological archeology probes of the Universe. Therefore, studying the nature of these systems allows a better understanding of the complex assembly scenarios that governed the early epochs of formation and evolution of their host galaxies. The Milky Way is fortunate to have a statistically significant sample (170 + 300 new candidates) of GCs, but the detailed chemistry of their inner/outer regions remains largely unexplored.
Here I present recent results from SDSS-IV/APOGEE-2, in particular dusting-off the bulge GCs population, as well as the large census of giant stars with GC-like abundance patterns of the project GALILEO (Galactic ArchaeoLogIcaL ExcavatiOns of the Milky Way), and the on-going Large Program of GC of the SDSS-V survey.
