We demonstrate the presence of an extended and massive circumgalactic medium (CGM) around Messier 31 using archival HST Cosmic Origins Spectrograph ultraviolet spectroscopy of 18 QSOs projected within two virial radii of M31 ( R vir = 300 ?> kpc). We detect absorption from Si iii at − 300 ≲ v LSR ≲ − 150 ?> km s−1 toward all three sightlines at R ≲ 0.2 R vir ?> , 3 of 4 sightlines at 0.8 ≲ R / R vir ≲ 1.1 ?> , and possibly 1 of 11 at 1.1 < R / R vir ≲ 1.8 ?> . We present several arguments that… 
THE STRUCTURE OF THE CIRCUMGALACTIC MEDIUM OF GALAXIES: COOL ACCRETION INFLOW AROUND NGC 1097
We present Hubble Space Telescope far-UV spectra of four QSOs whose sightlines pass through the halo of NGC 1097 at impact parameters of ρ = 48–165 kpc. NGC 1097 is a nearby spiral galaxy that has
Project AMIGA: The Circumgalactic Medium of Andromeda
Project AMIGA (Absorption Maps In the Gas of Andromeda) is a survey of the circumgalactic medium (CGM) of Andromeda (M31, ≃ 300 kpc) along 43 QSO sightlines at impact parameters 25 ≤ R ≤ 569 kpc (25
Project AMIGA: A Minimal Covering Factor for Optically Thick Circumgalactic Gas around the Andromeda Galaxy
We present a deep search for 21 cm emission from the gaseous halo of Messier 31 as part of Project AMIGA, a large Hubble Space Telescope program to study the circumgalactic medium of the Andromeda
ON THE SIZE AND MASS OF PHOTOIONIZED CLOUDS IN EXTENDED SPIRAL GALAXY HALOS
The size and mass of two circumgalactic medium (CGM) clouds in the halo (impact parameter = 65 kpc) of a nearby late-type galaxy, MGC-01-04-005 ( cz = 1865 ?> km s - 1 ?> ), are investigated using a
Tentative detection of the circumgalactic medium of the isolated low-mass dwarf galaxy WLM
We report a tentative detection of the circumgalactic medium (CGM) of Wolf–Lundmark–Melotte (WLM), an isolated, low-mass (logM*/M⊙ ≈ 7.6), dwarf irregular galaxy in the Local Group (LG). We analyse

Abstract Our view of galaxies has been transformed in recent years with diffuse halo gas surrounding galaxies that contains at least as many metals and baryons as their disks. While single sight
Metal Enrichment in the Circumgalactic Medium and Lyα Halos around Quasars at z ∼ 3
Deep observations have detected extended Lyα emission nebulae surrounding tens of quasars at redshift 2–6. However, the metallicity of such extended halos is still poorly understood. We perform a
A plane of high-velocity galaxies across the Local Group
We recently showed that several Local Group (LG) galaxies have much higher radial velocities (RVs) than predicted by a 3D dynamical model of the standard cosmological paradigm. Here, we show that 6
The diversity of the circumgalactic medium around z = 0 Milky Way-mass galaxies from the Auriga simulations
Galaxies are surrounded by massive gas reservoirs (i.e. the circumgalactic medium; CGM) which play a key role in their evolution. The properties of the CGM, which are dependent on a variety of
On the CGM Fundamental Plane: The Halo Mass Dependency of Circumgalactic H i
We analyze the equivalent widths of H i ( ) absorption from the inner (R < 160 kpc) circumgalactic medium (CGM) of 85 galaxies at z ∼ 0 with stellar masses M* ranging . Across three orders of

Relics of structure formation: extra-planar gas and high-velocity clouds around the Andromeda Galaxy
Using the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg, we mapped a large area around the Andromeda Galaxy in the 21 cm line emission of neutral hydrogen to search for high-velocity clouds (HVCs) out to large

We have undertaken high-resolution follow-up of a sample of high velocity H  clouds apparently associated with M 31. Our sample was chosen from the population of high-velocity clouds (HVCs) detected
