ANR Programme blanc: 2012-2017 (ANR-12-BS05-0016)
ANR TEAM: P.I. Lallement Rosine
Objective: produce tridimensional maps of the local InterStellar Matter (ISM) based on measurements of starlight absorption by dust (reddening effects) or gaseous species (absorption lines or bands). See Lallement et al, A&A, 561, A91 (2014), Capitanio et al, A&A, 606, A65 (2017), Lallement et al, submitted (2018). The current map is based on the inversion of reddening estimates towards 71,000 target stars.
Caution: in opaque regions the reddening maybe be underestimated, read paper before using maps.
