===================================================================== ==> In this proposal, more time is being requested for KERIKSSO.AGBSPEC2 ==> This proposal requests an upgrade from Priority 3 for KERIKSSO.AGBSPEC2 ===================================================================== We are applying for discretionary time to make another ISO SWS06 observation of the outer photosphere and the inner regions of the circumstellar shell of the AGB star R Doradus for approximately 15 minutes. The aim is to gain further insight into these regions' physical and chemical conditions. We will observe the wavelength range where two Q-branches of CO2 are found (13.9 um and 15.0 um). This observation would confirm or disprove a hypothesis for a finding made from ISO data in the AGBSPEC2 program (PI: Kjell Eriksson, Observer ID: KERIKSSO). This would increase the scientific return of ISO we believe.
