Building the first
predictive model
for the Galactic ecosystem !

Get Started Our Research

About ECOGAL Project

Understanding our Galactic ecosystem : from the disk of the Milky Way to the formation sites of stars and planets

Based on a unique combination of theoretical modeling and multi-wavelengths observations, three fundamental issues :

PLANETS

How do planet-forming disks relate to the Galactic environment?

STARS

What processes regulate the birth of stars?

GALAXY

Can we understand galaxy-scale star formation?

Ambitious programs approved and further data coming.

Demographics of clouds, cores and disks ALMA/NOEMA LPs :
ALMA-IMF (2017), FAUST (2018), CORE (2018), ALMAGAL (2019).

Galaxy scale surveys database integration: :
Hi-GAL, Gaia, SDSS-V, SKA precursors.

Planning key future surveys: JWST.
ALMA Band 2+3 technology for magnetic field & C-N-O isotopic chemistry.

Complete suite of state of the art numerical tools.

Complementary numerical simulation codes :
RAMSES, AREPO

Few 100, 000, 000 of cpu hours.

Post-processing tools to simulate observables :
POLARIS, RADMC

Back-to-back analysis :
simulations vs. data in unique databases Galactica & Vialactea
