The Research

The Parkes telescope and the Compact Array are being used to study the Magellanic System, consisting of the Small Magellanic Cloud, the Large Magellanic Cloud, the Magellanic Bridge and the Magellanic Stream. The following research areas are under investigation:

  • The interstellar medium and dynamics of the SMC and the LMC
  • The Magellanic Bridge
  • The Magellanic Stream
  • Modelling the interaction of the Milky Way and the Magellanic Clouds
  • The Magellanic HVC population
  • Radio continuum emission of the LMC and SMC
  • Polarimetry and Magnetic fields in the ISM of the LMC and SMC
  • Star formation and evolution processes
  • HII regions
  • Molecules
  • Supernova remnants
