  • We present a study of the physical properties of the disc and tail of ESO137-001, a galaxy suffering from extreme ram-pressure stripping during its infall into the Norma cluster. With sensitive and spatially resolved MUSE (Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer) spectroscopy, we analyse the emission line diagnostics in the tail of ESO137-001, finding high values of [N II]/H alpha and [O I]/H alpha that are suggestive of the presence of shocks in turbulent gas. However, the observed line ratios are… CONTINUE READING
