Quantifying feedback from stellar winds and supernovae in nearby galaxies
Combining multi-wavelength observations, this PHANGS collaboration project will identify supernova remnants and Wolf-Rayet star clusters within nearby galaxies. Using optical spectroscopy, we will then directly measure the radiative and mechanical input of stellar winds into the ISM. With statistical samples, we will spatially correlate supernova remnants and Wolf-Rayet star positions with the locations of current massive star formation to understand if this feedback serves to trigger or suppress star formation.
