We analyze the relationships between atomic, neutral hydrogen (H i) and star formation (SF) in the 12 low-mass SHIELD galaxies. We compare high spectral (∼0.82 km s−1 ch−1) and spatial resolution (physical resolutions of 160–640 pc) H i imaging from the VLA with Hα and far-ultraviolet imaging. We quantify the degree of co-spatiality between star-forming regions and regions of high H i column densities. We calculate the global star formation efficiencies (SFE; / ) and examine the relationships… 

Galaxy Properties at the Faint End of the H i Mass Function

The Survey of H i in Extremely Low-mass Dwarfs (SHIELD) includes a volumetrically complete sample of 82 gas-rich dwarfs with MHI≲107.2 M⊙ selected from the ALFALFA survey. We are obtaining extensive

We present kinematic analyses of the 12 galaxies in the “Survey of H i in Extremely Low-mass Dwarfs” (SHIELD). We use multi-configuration interferometric observations of the H i 21 cm emission line

First Characterization of the Neutral ISM in Two Local Volume Dwarf Galaxies

We present the first H i spectral-line images of the nearby, star-forming dwarf galaxies UGC 11411 and UGC 8245, acquired as part of the “Observing for University Classes” program with the Karl G.

The volumetric star formation law for nearby galaxies

In the last decades, much effort has been put into finding the star formation law, which could unequivocally link the gas and the star formation rate (SFR) densities measured on a sub-kiloparsec

(Almost) Dark Galaxies in the ALFALFA Survey: Isolated H i-bearing Ultra-diffuse Galaxies

We present a sample of 115 very low optical surface brightness, highly extended, H i-rich galaxies carefully selected from the ALFALFA survey that have similar optical absolute magnitudes, surface

We use new and updated gas- and dust-corrected star formation rate (SFR) surface densities to revisit the integrated star formation law for local “quiescent” spiral, dwarf, and low surface brightness

The Enigmatic (Almost) Dark Galaxy Coma P: The Atomic Interstellar Medium

We present new high-resolution H i spectral line imaging of Coma P, the brightest H i source in the system HI 1232+20. This galaxy with extremely low surface brightness was first identified in the

Robust H i kinematics of gas-rich ultra-diffuse galaxies: hints of a weak-feedback formation scenario

We study the gas kinematics of a sample of six isolated gas-rich low surface brightness galaxies, of the class called ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs). These galaxies have recently been shown to be
