The above are projects currently being worked on, with the lead of the project in red.  Email mputman@astro.columbia.edu if you would like to start a new project or be included in an existing project.

Publication Policy:  "The first paper you publish with TOGS data should include Josh Peek and Kevin Douglas as co-authors, as they have both committed a large number of working hours to make the data available for scientific analysis. In addition, if any of the following people voice an interest in becoming involved in a project you propose you should include them, as they also played an important role in making the data available: Kevin Douglas, Steven Gibson, Carl Heiles, Eric Korpela, Josh Peek, Mary Putman, Snezana Stanimirovic."
