“Dust component of the ISM: Numerical Modeling and Observation Results from Herschel”

After some introductory basics of interstellar dust I will discuss how the dust component of the interstellar media (ISM) is modeled with CLOUDY to produce observables in photodissociation regions (PDRs) and HII regions. Since its launch in May 2009 European Space Agency’s Herschel Infrared Space Observatory has observed Galactic and extragalactic dust with unprecedented sensitivity and efficiency. I will discuss some of the observational results.
