The Scales of Star Formation – Insights from the UV

Daniela Calzetti (UMass)

Over two decades of observations from the Ultraviolet to the Infrared with a host of space missions, including the HST, Spitzer, Herschel, GALEX, etc. have enabled us to recover the census of both the intensity and the distribution of star formation within galaxies. This, in turn, is informing us on the physics underlying the links between star formation, feedback, and the natal gas from which stars form. I will present a few results of a recent HST treasury program that is building upon previous findings to shed light on the scales of star formation and their interlinks within galaxies.
