Description We propose to make deep PACS observations of a 1.75-square degree
region of the Coma cluster which encompasses both the dense core and
the southwest infall region, and covers a factor of 100 in galaxy density.
In combination with SPIRE data from the Herschel-ATLAS Key Project,
these data will provide the first reliable measurements of the dust
properties in a rich galaxy cluster. We have assembled a vast
multi-wavelength dataset over this region of Coma that has allowed us
to compute reliable stellar masses for nearly 2,000
spectroscopically-confirmed cluster members. We will (i) measure the
far-infrared luminosity function and determine whether the turnover
seen in Virgo is also present in Coma; (ii) measure the dust masses
and temperatures of all galaxies brighter than this turnover; (iii)
derive reliable *total* star-formation rates for all galaxies from a
combination of UV, H-alpha, and far-IR imaging, and hence address the
controversy surrounding optically-classified post-starburst
galaxies; (iv) relate these important properties of the cluster
galaxies to quantities such as stellar mass, galaxy morphology, local
galaxy density, and the density of the intra-cluster medium, to
determine which physical processes are responsible for the
transformation of galaxies from late-type to early-type. We will also
search for intra-cluster dust which is expected to be produced via
stripping of material from infalling galaxies.

Mission Description Herschel was launched on 14 May 2009! It is the fourth 'cornerstone' mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it is the largest space telescope ever launched. It is performing photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-671 µm range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and groundbased facilities.
