ESO/MPE/MPA Gas Matters Club
ESO/MPE/MPA Gas Matters Club
A picture arises where galaxy formation is fed by inflows of gas from
the inter-galactic medium (IGM), counteracted by strong galactic
winds, which in concert establish the growth rate of gas and stars
within galaxies at all cosmic epochs. These processes can be
collectively described as a "baryon cycle". The club on "Gas Matters"
covers the following topics:
- gas in its atomic and molecular forms
- gas accretion/galactic winds
- WHIM/hidden baryons
Every second Monday at 11am in the ESO library.
Co-organisation: Annalisa De Cia (ESO), Rob Yates (MPA), Celine Peroux (MPA visitor).
If you want to present your work or suggest a speaker, please send us an email.
