Aims. We measure far-infrared (FIR) emission from tails of stripped dust following the ionised and atomic gas components in galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping. We study the dust-to-gas relative distribution and mass ratio in the stripped interstellar medium and relate them to those of the intra-cluster medium (ICM), thus linking the cluster-ICM-galaxy evolution at small-scales. The galaxy sample consists of three Scd Virgo galaxies with stellar masses in the range of 109 ≲ M* ≲ 1010 M…

A MeerKAT view of pre-processing in the Fornax A group

We present MeerKAT neutral hydrogen (H I) observations of the Fornax A group, which is likely falling into the Fornax cluster for the first time. Our H I image is sensitive to 1.4 × 1019 atoms cm−2

Dust in Clusters of Galaxies

The presence of dust in the intracluster medium (ICM) has been a long-standing problem that is still awaiting elucidation. Direct observational diagnostics are rather challenging (though not

Measuring the Total Ultraviolet Light from Galaxy Clusters at z = 0.5–1.6: The Balance of Obscured and Unobscured Star Formation

Combined observations from UV to IR wavelengths are necessary to fully account for the star formation in galaxy clusters. Low-mass galaxies with log(M∗/M⊙)<10 are typically not individually detected,

Ram pressure stripping in high-density environments

Galaxies living in rich environments are suffering different perturbations able to drastically affect their evolution. Among these, ram pressure stripping, i.e. the pressure exerted by the hot and

Context. The evolution of galaxies depends on their interaction with the surrounding environment. Ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) have been found in large numbers in clusters. We detected a few

A universal correlation between warm and hot gas in the stripped tails of cluster galaxies

The impact of ram pressure stripping on galaxy evolution is well known (for example, ref. 1 ). Recent multi-wavelength data have revealed many examples of galaxies undergoing stripping, often

It’s Cloud’s Illusions I Recall: Mixing Drives the Acceleration of Clouds from Ram Pressure Stripped Galaxies

Ram pressure stripping can remove gas from satellite galaxies in clusters via a direct interaction between the intracluster medium (ICM) and the interstellar medium. This interaction is generally

Ram Pressure Stripping in the Virgo Cluster

Gas can be violently stripped from their galaxy disks in rich clusters, and be dispersed over 100kpc-scale tails or plumes. Young stars have been observed in these tails, suggesting they are formed

Simulating the dust content of galaxies and their surrounding gas is challenging due to the wide range of physical processes affecting the dust evolution. Here we present cosmological
