Mass budgets, kinematics, and ISM conditions of 1<z<3 star-forming galaxies

Reinhard Genzel/Hannah Uebler (MPE Garching) - February 6, 2017 at 12:10 pm

Time-intensive observations of large samples of galaxies during the peak epoch of cosmic star-formation rate density have become possible with multiplexing instruments such as KMOS or MOSFIRE. We will discuss recent insights from the KMOS^3D survey on the mass budgets, kinematics, and ISM conditions of massive, main-sequence galaxies at redshifts 0.7<z<2.7. In particular, we will present how high-z rotation curve measurements advance our understanding of galaxy evolution, and we will show some recent results on the incidence and properties of outflows in these systems.

The seminar will be held in 131A Campbell Hall.
