The Era of WISE Has Dawned: ATNF/AAO are you ready? - Tom Jarret Colloquium

WISE is an all-sky mid-infrared imaging survey that will be a unique
resource for the next two decades (if not more). WISE has the dual capacity,bas I will demonstrate, of providing information for large-scale surveys, as well as uncovering detailed ISM processes previously only achievable by the Spitzer Space Telescope. By highlighting WISE's major extragalactic science results to date, I hope to illustrate the scope of science WISE can be used to study; e.g., AGN, starburst and radio galaxies, hyper-luminous galaxies, sources in
cosmologically-interesting volumes (e.g., WALLABY, EMU, GAMA), and nearby resolved galaxies. Finally, as a demonstration of science that can be carried out with resolution-enhanced imaging, I will showcase the detailed, truly multiwavelength study of M83, incorporating WISE/Spitzer with the ATCA HI gas distribution and GALEX UV emission,
thus tracing the evolution from gas to stars.
