Abstract / Description:The Nearby Young Moving Groups (NYMGs) of stars are ideal for the study of the evolution of circumstellar disks in which planets may form because their ages range from a few Myr to ~100 Myr, about the same as the interval over which planets are thought to form. Their stars are distributed over large regions of the sky. Hence, the Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), which scanned the entire sky in four bands from 3.4 to 22.1 μm, provides a database well suited for the study of members of the NYMGs, particularly those identified after the eras of the IRAS and Spitzer observatories. Here, we report our study of the stars in the epsilon and η Cha, TW Hya, β Pic, Tuc-Hor, and
