Scientific activities

The UNIONS science collaboration exploits the deep u,g,r,i,z wide coverage imaging dataset to investigate the following astrophysical fields:

  • Milky Way stellar populations
  • Milky Way dynamics
  • Milky Way interstellar medium
  • Dwarf galaxies
  • Galaxy evolution in the nearby Universe
  • Galaxy mergers
  • Clusters of galaxies
  • High redshift galaxies and AGN
  • Weak lensing
  • Galaxy clustering

Such efforts rely on cutting-edge data processing and analysis that are fully part of the UNIONS research activities:

  • Algorithms
  • Photometric Redshifts
