Splinter Meeting SNR

Supernova remnants and the hot interstellar medium

Time: Tuesday September 12, 14:00-16:30 CEST (UTC+2)

Massive stars ionise and heat the ambient interstellar medium (ISM) through their stellar winds, which cause strong interstellar shocks. The shocks in supernova remnants (SNRs) heat the ISM as well and create new interstellar structures. Through the stellar and supernova feedback, elements processed in stars and in the explosions are distributed in the ISM. In addition, particles are accelerated to relativistic energies. In this splinter meeting we would like to discuss new observational and theoretical studies of stellar winds, SN explosions, SNRs, hot plasma in the ISM, and cosmic ray acceleration throughout the electromagnetic spectrum.
