Radio Spectroscopy of the Interstellar Medium

Loris Magnani

We will have a look at how radio astronomers study the cold interstellar medium primarily using spectroscopy of diatomic molecules. After a brief introduction to the topic, the student will learn some basic data reduction techniques for molecular spectral line data and see how that data are used to determine the physical parameters of molecular clouds in the Galaxy.
