Contributed Science Cases:


Below is a list of suggested science cases provided by the AtLAST community. If/when adding your own suggestions, please read through the current list to ensure you're not duplicating a case, and use the template below for structuring your input.


Title: My Contributed Science Case
Summary: Here I'm going to regale you with a tale of the amazing contributions to my field that the AtLAST telescope will be able to provide. There are a lot of specifics in this summary, but I'm striving to keep it short and succinct. I also don't need any figures or tables to drive my point home.

Title: Bridging the observational gap between the ISM and the CGM 

Summary: Detection of extended (>10 kpc) molecular and atomic gas reservoirs that constitute the so-called "circum-galactic medium", so far studied mostly in absorption and at other wavelengths. The CGM encodes crucial info about: feeding/feedback processes and galaxy interactions. Key science case for ATLAST (especially in conjunction with ALMA): need very high sensitivity, zero-spacing coverage, and large FoV. Relevant for both local and high-z galaxies (see also Extragalactic Science cases).
