My project makes use of data from the VLA (Very Large Array), an array of 27 radio telescopes near Socorro, New Mexico. I use the AIPS (Astronomical Image Processing System) software for data reduction and the kvis and kshell tools in the karma software package for analysis.
Data on this galaxy have already been obtained from the VLA at ~7" resolution. I calibrated a new set of higher resolution (~2") data and merged it with the older data, then searched for signatures of star formation in the HI gas of the ISM.
