PI: Catherine A Pilachowski, Indiana U., catyp@astro.indiana.edu
Address: Astronomy Department, 727 E 3rd St, Bloomington, Indiana 47405 USA

Title: Population Gradients in M31 Globular Clusters

Abstract: This is an experimental program to investigate the feasibility of using WHIRC to detect and measure composition gradients due to central concentrations of "second generation" stars in globular clusters. This program will focus on massive M31 clusters with long dynamical time scales. These clusters should still preserve any initial difference in population distributions.

Program Type: ITAC

Scheduled Nights:
Run 1 (2017B):  WIYN/WHIRC -- 3n on Sep 30 - Oct 02 2017
