[9.06] Observable Consequences of Grain Growth & Settling in Herbig Ae/Be Disks

A. Tannirkulam, J. D. Monnier (University of Michigan), T. J. Harries (University of Exeter)

Circumstellar disk models for Herbig Ae/Be stars have evolved in sophistication over the last few years. Up until now these models have concentrated on fitting either SEDs or, more recently, interferometry data. Self-consistent models that explain both data jointly will require an understanding of how coagulation, settling and spatial segregation of dust affect the density and temperature structure of the disk. In this poster, we explore disk models that take these effects into account, illustrating how simultaneous fitting of SEDs, near-IR interferometry and mid-IR interferometry can solve some long-standing problems with model parameter degeneracies.
