Grant: Daniel Proga
Daniel Proga (Physics and Astronomy) has been awarded a three-year grant for $464,618 from NASA to study radiation-magnetohydrodynamics of clouds in active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Proga and his collaborators will continue their quest to develop a comprehensive and quantitative theory for cloud formation, destruction, and acceleration based on high-resolution computer simulations. The results of this project will reveal the basic physical properties of flows in AGNs with unprecedented accuracy and detail. The observational diagnostics will be compared with observations by both current NASA missions such as HST, Chandra, Spitzer, Swift, and NuSTAR, as well as future missions such as JWST.
