Connections between Galaxy Morphology and Star Cluster Populations in Nearby Spirals

Jenna Ryon (University of Wisconsin-Madison)

All star-forming galaxies host populations of young and intermediate-age star clusters. The properties of these star cluster populations (that is, their ages and masses) reflect the star formation history and morphological peculiarities of their host galaxies. The Snapshot Hubble U-Band Cluster Survey (SHUCS) is intended to characterize the star cluster populations of a sample of nearby (
