SN thermalization efficiency paper published!


O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

Our paper on theoretically-derived constraints on the supernova thermalization efficiency and central mass loading of M82's starburst-driven galactic wind is no longer "in press," but has been published. No longer will you have to make do with the arXiv preprint version.

"Supernova Feedback Efficiency and Mass Loading in the Starburst and Galactic Superwind Exemplar M82", Strickland & Heckman, The Astrophysical Journal, 2009, 697, 2030-2056.
