We present Herschel dust continuum, James Clerk Maxwell Telescope CO (3–2) observations and a search for [C II ] 158 forumla m and [O I ] 63 forumla m spectral line emission for the brightest early-type dwarf satellite of Andromeda, NGC 205. While direct gas measurements [ Mg ∼ 1.5 × 10 6 M ⊙ , H I + CO (1–0)] have proven to be inconsistent with theoretical predictions of the current gas reservoir in NGC 205 (>10 7 M ⊙ ), we revise the missing interstellar medium mass problem based on new gas… Expand

The interstellar medium in Andromeda's dwarf spheroidal galaxies – II. Multiphase gas content and ISM conditions
We make an inventory of the interstellar medium material in three low-metallicity dwarf spheroidal galaxies of the Local Group (NGC 147, NGC 185 and NGC 205). Ancillary HI, CO, Spitzer InfraredExpand
The interstellar medium in Andromeda's dwarf spheroidal galaxies, I : content and origin of the interstellar dust
Dwarf spheroidal galaxies are among the most numerous galaxy population in the Universe, but their main formation and evolution channels are still not well understood. The three dwarf spheroidalExpand
HERschel Observations of Edge-on Spirals (HEROES) - I. Far-infrared morphology and dust mass determination
Context. Edge-on spiral galaxies with prominent dust lanes provide us with an excellent opportunity to study the distribution and properties of the dust within them. The HEROES project was set up toExpand
Fermi-LAT Observations of γ-Ray Emission toward the Outer Halo of M31
The Andromeda Galaxy is the closest spiral galaxy to us and has been the subject of numerous studies. It harbors a massive dark matter (DM) halo which may span up to ~600 kpc across and comprisesExpand
Dust and Stellar Emission of the Magellanic Clouds
We study the emission by dust and stars in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, a pair of low-metallicity nearby galaxies, as traced by their spatially resolved spectral energy distributions. ThisExpand
HST/ACS Direct Ages of the Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies NGC 147 and NGC 185
We present the deepest optical photometry for any dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxy based on Hubble Space Telescope ACS observations of the Local Group dE galaxies NGC 147 and NGC 185. The resulting F606WExpand
An Overview of the Dwarf Galaxy Survey
The Dwarf Galaxy Survey (DGS) program is studying low-metallicity galaxies using 230 hr of farinfrared (FIR) and submillimetre (submm) photometric and spectroscopic observations of the Herschel SpaceExpand
Planetary nebulae: the universal mass–metallicity relation for Local Group dwarf galaxies and the chemistry of NGC 205
Here we study 16 planetary nebulae (PNe) in the dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 205 by using GMOS@Gemini spectra to derive their physical and chemical parameters. The chemical patterns and evolutionaryExpand
Spatially-resolved dust properties of the GRB 980425 host galaxy
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been proposed as a tool for studying star formation in the Universe, so it is crucial to investigate whether their host galaxies and immediate environments are in any wayExpand
Planck intermediate results: XXV. The Andromeda galaxy as seen by Planck
The Andromeda galaxy (M 31) is one of a few galaxies that has sufficient angular size on the sky to be resolved by the Planck satellite. Planck has detected M 31 in all of its frequency bands, andExpand


Herschel photometric observations of the nearby low metallicity irregular galaxy NGC 6822
