Title: Nature and Dynamics of Clumps in Star-Forming Galaxies at z ~ 1 - 2

Abstract: The advent of near-infrared integral field spectrographs with AO has enabled detailed characterization of small- scale properties of galaxies out to high redshifts. Combining the proposed NIFS observations with resolved property maps from modeling multi-band HST images and ISM morphology from ALMA, we aim to investigate the nature and stability of clumps and study the resolved main sequence relation within star-forming galaxies. For this pilot study, we request 4 hours of NIFS +Altair to obtain Halpha distribution and kinematics in two star-forming galaxies at z ~ 1-2.
