ARCHES : Astronomical Resource Cross-matching for High Energy Studies (FP7-SPACE-2012-I 313146)
ARCHES will focus on the X-ray survey
catalogue data from the XMM-Newton mission. New tools will bedeveloped
for cross-correlation with extensive archival resources, producing
well-characterised multi-wavelengthdata in the form of spectral energy
distributions for large sets of objects. These enhanced resources
willsignificantly broaden the effective exploitation of the data by the
scientific community in the exploration of a widerange of forefront
astrophysical questions. The Principal Investigator of this project is
Dr. C. Motch from the Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg
(Université de Strasbourg, France). The other partners are the Centre de
Donnés Stellaires (also from the Université de Strasbourg), the
University of Leicester (UK), the Leibnitz Institute for Astrophysics
Potsdam (Germany) and the Centro de Astrobiología (CSIC-INTA, Spain).
The local PI at IFCA (UC-CSIC) is Dr. Francisco J. Carrera, and Drs.
Almudena Alonso and Silvia Mateos also participate in the project.
