Environmental Effects on the Kinematics of Virgo Cluster Galaxies


We present results from an ongoing survey dedicated to the ionized gas kinematics of Virgo cluster spiral galaxies using Fabry-Perot (FP) interferometry. Our goal is to study the environmental effects on galaxy evolution in the Virgo cluster. We report here on the Hα distribution map and velocity field of NGC 4438, the prototype of an interacting galaxy near the centre of the cluster.
