Description We propose a nustar-xmm monitoring of 5x30ks observations spaced by 3-4 days of the bright Radio-Quiet Seyfert 1 ESO511-G030. Its spectrum is characterised by a relativistic Fe Kalpha line (significance >5sig) and a strong soft excess, thus making ESO511-G030 the ideal candidate for testing the warm Comptonisation origin of soft excess in AGN. In fact, warm corona has been proved to be a viable physical model in sources without a relativistic reflection component, but it has never been properly tested in a source hosting a relativistic iron line where the soft excess is reproduced via relativistic reflection. The proposed monitoring will allow us to test the general validity of the warm Comptonisation by breaking its spectral degeneracy with relativistic reflection.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
