TANAMI: Parsec Scale AGN Physics in the Multiwavelength Era - Roopesh Ojha Colloquium

With its broader energy coverage, higher resolution, wider field of
view and greater sensitivity, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) of the
Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is dramatically increasing our
knowledge of AGN gamma-ray emission. However, discriminating between
competing theoretical models requires quasi-simultaneous observations
across the electromagnetic spectrum.

The TANAMI (Tracking AGN with Austral Milliarcsecond Interferometry)
and associated programs provide comprehensive radio monitoring for
Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope sources south of declination -30
degrees. Near simultaneous data from the Swift satellite and ground
based optical facilities span the gap from radio to gamma-ray
energies. We describe the TANAMI program in the context of this
panchromatic suite of observations and present early results.
