MaNGA

MaNGA is part of the 4th edition of the Sloan Digitalized Sky Survey, and it consists in a multi-IFU (Integral Field Units) survey aimed at delivering 3D spectroscopy (i.e. spatially resolved spectroscopic information) for an unprecedented sample of 10,000 local galaxies. This ongoing survey is being heavily exploited by KICC researchers to characterize the physical properties of local galaxies and to constrain their evolutionary processes.
