Research Endeavours (Christine Clement)
Christine Clement's Publications
- Most of my research activity involves the study of variable stars
in globular clusters.
For many years (1972-1997), I observed with the University of Toronto's
telescope, located in Chile at the Las Campanas Observatory of the Carnegie
- After the University of Toronto Observatory at Las Campanas was
closed, I became an affiliate of the
Collaboration in order to have access to their data on
RR Lyrae variables in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
- Nowadays my research time is spent on cataloguing
variable stars in Galactic globular clusters.
My Catalogue of Variable Stars in Galactic
Globular Clusters was summarized in a 2001 paper
(Clement, C. M., Muzzin, A., Dufton, Q., Ponnampalam, T., Wang, J.,
Burford, J., Richardson, A., Rosebery, T. 2001, AJ, 122, 2587).
The current version of the catalogue is available in ascii files -
one file for each cluster.
- The year 2009 was the International Year of
Astronomy and in honour of the occasion, I wrote a series of articles
for the Thamesville Herald. Thamesville is a small town in
southwestern Ontario. It is where I grew up.
Shortly after I retired in 2006, I was invited to present a paper on
Women in Astronomy at the University of Toronto,
at the meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Calgary
(2006, Bulletin of the American Astronomical Society, 38, 103).
