Poster 8: Kameron Goold – Using Elemental Abundances to Explore the Star Formation History of the Milky Way

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Gail Zasowski

We focus here on efforts to empirically measure the relationship between the chemical abundance ratios of magnesium-to-iron (written [Mg/Fe]) and iron-to-hydrogen (written [Fe/H]). The distribution of this relationship in chemical space is representative of progressive star formation in the Milky Way. We parameterize this distribution by measuring the slope of its morphology in order to explore the star formation history of the Milky Way Galaxy.
