Proposal ID and Data Access
A Legacy program to utilize HAWC+ to map the central region of the Galaxy at both 214 µm and 89 µm. We will utilize the shared-risk scan mode polarimetry observing strategy. The resulting data products will yield a transformative data set for understanding the magnetic fields in both the cool dust ring in the central 200 pc and the warmer dust component and its relationship to the hot features of the Galactic center. Such a data set would elucidate the role of the magnetic field in Galactic center dynamics from the 200 pc scale down to scales below a parsec.
