Ism Masses and the Star Formation Law at Z = 1 to 6 Alma Observations of Dust Continuum in 145 Galaxies in the Cosmos Survey Field

Abstract

ALMA Cycle 2 observations of the long wavelength dust emission in 145 star-forming galaxies are used to probe the evolution of star-forming ISM. We also develop the physical basis and empirical calibration (with 72 low-z and z ∼2 galaxies) for using the dust continuum as a quantitative probe of interstellar medium (ISM) masses. The galaxies with highest… (More)
