The Star Formation Efficiency in Nearby Galaxies: Measuring Where Gas Forms Stars Effectively
We measure the star formation efficiency (SFE), the star formation rate (SFR) per unit of gas, in 23 nearby galaxies and compare it with expectations from proposed star formation laws and thresholds.Expand
The Star Formation Law in Nearby Galaxies on Sub-Kpc Scales
We present a comprehensive analysis of the relationship between star formation rate surface density, ΣSFR, and gas surface density, Σgas, at sub-kpc resolution in a sample of 18 nearby galaxies. WeExpand
The mid-infrared spectrum of star-forming galaxies: Global properties of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emission
We present a sample of low-resolution 5-38 μm Spitzer IRS spectra of the inner few square kiloparsecs of 59 nearby galaxies spanning a large range of star formation properties. A robust method forExpand
Cool Gas in High-Redshift Galaxies
Over the past decade, observations of the cool interstellar medium (ISM) in distant galaxies via molecular and atomic fine structure line (FSL) emission have gone from a curious look into a fewExpand
We present The H I Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS), a high spectral (≤5.2 km s–1) and spatial (~6'') resolution survey of H I emission in 34 nearby galaxies obtained using the NRAO Very Large ArrayExpand
Dust Masses, PAH Abundances, and Starlight Intensities in the SINGS Galaxy Sample
Physical dust models are presented for 65 galaxies in SINGS that are strongly detected in the four IRAC bands and three MIPS bands. For each galaxy we estimate (1) the total dust mass, (2) theExpand
SINGS: The SIRTF Nearby Galaxies Survey
The SIRTF Nearby Galaxy Survey is a comprehensive infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey of 75 nearby galaxies. Its primary goal is to characterize the infrared emission of galaxies and theirExpand
The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point sourceExpand
High-resolution rotation curves and galaxy mass models from THINGS
We present rotation curves of 19 galaxies from The H I Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS). The high spatial and velocity resolution of THINGS make these the highest quality H I rotation curves availableExpand
