kinematic and spatial MW substructure

Zolotov and I talked about creating a micro-project on kinematic substructure in the Milky Way halo. Lots of substructure has been found in real space, and lots of stellar velocities have been measured, so we are looking in velocity space. But there are many data issues—most kinematic samples are horrendously selected. We want to start with a baby step that is insensitive to these selection effects. I think we will start by measuring kinematics for known structures.
