Experts Gather to Discuss the Circumgalactic Medium

Organized by Professor Claude-André Faucher-Giguère and Postdoctoral Fellow Jonathan Stern, CIERA hosted a workshop for 50 experts on the circumgalactic medium July 30 – August 3, 2018.

The circumgalactic medium (CGM) is host to many physical processes critical to galaxy formation. Beyond important issues concerning the mass, energy, and chemical content of the CGM, the scientific community is vigorously debating several open questions about this part of our Universe. The expert theoreticians and observers invited to this limited-size workshop at Northwestern discussed these matters in-depth, and also had the opportunity to enjoy visiting Chicago and our Evanston campus in the summertime.
