CoRoT and the Virtual Observatory: Use Cases

#1 Access to different archives to assess membership criteria

  • Rotation in NGC 2264: a study based on CoRoT photometric observations (Affer et al. 2013MNRAS.430.1433)

    • Requirements
      • Access to catalogue information:
        • Radial velocities (Furesz+, 2006)
        • Variability (Lamm, 2004)
        • Spitzer photometry (Sung+, 2009)
        • X-rays (Chandra & XMM catalogues)
        • Halpha (photometry)
    • VO-tools to be used: TOPCAT, ALADIN
      • Halpha (spectroscopy)
    • VO-tools to be used: VOSED


#2 Acess to spectroscopic data for follow-up studies (e.g. determination of physical parameters).

  • High-precision CoRoT space photometry and fundamental parameter determination of the B2.5V star HD 48977 (Thoul et al. 2013A&A...551A..12T)

  • γ Doradus pulsation in two pre-main sequence stars discovered by CoRoT (Zwintz et al. 2013A&A...550A.121Z)

  • From CoRoT 102899501 to the Sun. A time evolution model of chromospheric activity on the main sequence (Gondoin et al. 2012A&A...548A..15G)

    • VO-tools to be used (for discovery and access VO archives containing spectra of the target): VOSpec, SPLAT
      • Access to photometry to derive physical parameters from the Spectral Energy Distribution (Thoul, Zwint)
    • VO-tools to be used: VOSA
  •  Improved varibility classification of CoRoT targets with Giraffe spectra (Sarro et al. 2013 2013A&A...550A.120S)

    • Requirements

      • Access to spectrocopic information for a large number of targets
    • VO-tools to be used (for discovery and access VO archives containing spectra): VOSED

#3 Acess to photometric data for follow-up studies (e.g. determination of physical parameters.

  • High-precision CoRoT space photometry and fundamental parameter determination of the B2.5V star HD 48977 (Thoul et al. 2013A&A...551A..12T)

  • Gamma Doradus pulsation in two pre-main sequence stars discovered by CoRoT (Zwintz et al. 2013A&A...550A.121Z)

  • Debris disc candidates in systems with transiting planets (Krivov 2011 MNRAS 418, L15)

 

 Time Series tools

 #1 VO compliance of time series tools: Period04 (Lenz & Breger 2005)

  • Period04 supports the SAMP communication protocol to provide interoperability with other applications of the Virtual Observatory.
    • VO-tools can be used for data discovery and access 
    • Period04 can be used for data analysis.
