Adam Leroy (Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie)
Arm-Interarm Contrasts in HERACLES and THINGS Dr. Adam Leroy (Max Plack Institute for Astronomy) HERACLES and THINGS are overlapping surveys of the molecular and atomic interstellar medium in nearby galaxies. I will give a short description of the ...

Peter Tueben (University of Maryland)
The (im)persistance of Spiral Structure(s) in NGC 5055 Dr. Peter Teuben (University of Maryland) The structure and kinematics of spirals in disk galaxies from interferometers (especially ones that mosaic) is susceptible to a variety of numeric eff ...

Pearls-09: Spiral Arm Substructure in Nearby Galaxies
Clare Dobbs (University of Exeter)
I will present calculations which show the formation of GMCs by the agglomeration of smaller clouds in spiral shocks, and the subsequent shearing of GMCs into interarm spurs. I will discuss how magnetic fields, thermodynamics and self gravity aid or ...
