J/A+A/521/A8        Star-forming regions in NGC 2903 bar       (Popping+, 2010)

We analyse the star-formation properties in the bar region of NGC 2903 and study its links to the typical bar morphological features. We combine space and ground-based data from the far-ultraviolet to the sub-millimeter spectral ranges to create a panchromatic view of the NGC 2903 bar. We produce two catalogues: one for the current star-formation regions, as traced by the Hα compact emission, and a second for the ultraviolet (UV) emitting knots, containing positions and luminosities. From them, we obtain ultraviolet colours, star-formation rates, dust attenuation, and Hα EWs, and analyse their spatial distribution. We estimate stellar cluster ages using stellar population synthesis models (Starburst99). Description: To investigate the extinction and the star-formation in the bar of NGC 2903 we used the Spitzer 24um observations from the Multiband Imaging Photometer (MIPS) instrument. To analyse the UV emission and its distribution in NGC 2903, we used GALEX mission data. Ground-based optical images from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and a map of the CO (J=1-0) rotational transition emission were also used for the morphological analysis of NGC 2903.
