We study the role of cold gas in quenching star formation in the green valley by analyzing ALMA 12CO (1–0) observations of three galaxies with resolved optical spectroscopy from the MaNGA survey. We present resolution-matched maps of the star formation rate and molecular gas mass. These data are used to calculate the star formation efficiency (SFE) and gas fraction ( ) for these galaxies separately in the central “bulge” regions and outer disks. We find that, for the two galaxies whose global… 
SDSS IV MaNGA - sSFR profiles and the slow quenching of discs in green valley galaxies
We study radial profiles in Hα equivalent width and specific star formation rate (sSFR) derived from spatially-resolved SDSS-IV MaNGA spectroscopy to gain insight on the physical mechanisms that
SDSS-IV MaNGA: Spatially Resolved Star Formation Main Sequence and LI(N)ER Sequence
We present our study on the spatially resolved Hα and M* relation for 536 star-forming and 424 quiescent galaxies taken from the MaNGA survey. We show that the star formation rate surface density (
SDSS IV MaNGA: Dependence of Global and Spatially Resolved SFR-M ∗ Relations on Galaxy Properties
The galaxy integrated Hα star formation rate–stellar mass relation, or SFR(global)–M*(global) relation, is crucial for understanding star formation history and evolution of galaxies. However, many
The ALMaQUEST survey – III. Scatter in the resolved star-forming main sequence is primarily due to variations in star formation efficiency
Using a sample of 11 478 spaxels in 34 galaxies with molecular gas, star formation, and stellar maps taken from the ALMA-MaNGA QUEnching and STar formation (ALMaQUEST) survey, we investigate the
Do Galaxy Morphologies Really Affect the Efficiency of Star Formation During the Phase of Galaxy Transition?
Recent simulations predict that the presence of the stellar bulge suppress the efficiency of star formation (SF) in early-type galaxies, and this “morphological quenching” scenario is supported by
The EDGE-CALIFA survey: exploring the role of molecular gas on galaxy star formation quenching
Understanding how galaxies cease to form stars represents an outstanding challenge for galaxy evolution theories. This process of “star formation quenching” has been related to various causes,
xGASS: cold gas content and quenching in galaxies below the star-forming main sequence
We use HI and H2 global gas measurements of galaxies from xGASS and xCOLD GASS to investigate quenching paths of galaxies below the star formation main sequence (SFMS). We show that the population of
GASP XXX. The Spatially Resolved SFR–Mass Relation in Stripping Galaxies in the Local Universe
The study of the spatially resolved star formation rate–mass ( – ) relation gives important insights on how galaxies assemble at different spatial scales. Here, we present an analysis of the – of 40
The ALMaQUEST survey – VI. The molecular gas main sequence of ‘retired’ regions in galaxies
In order to investigate the role of gas in the demise of star formation on kpc-scales, we compare the resolved molecular gas main sequence (rMGMS: $\Sigma _{\rm H_2}$ versus Σ⋆) of star-forming
Spatial distribution of stellar mass and star formation activity at 0.2 < z < 1.2 across and along the main sequence
High-resolution multi-wavelength photometry is crucial to explore the spatial distribution of star formation in galaxies and understand how these evolve. To this aim, in this paper we exploit the
