Cool Accretion Numerical models predict that in order to keep forming stars, galaxies should be continuously replenished with gas from the intergalactic medium. Using data from the Very Large Telescope in Chile, Bouché et al. (p. 50) report observations that are consistent with accretion of cold, chemically pristine gas onto a star-forming galaxy at a time when the cosmic star-formation activity was at its peak. Observations of gas near a star-forming galaxy reveal kinematic signatures expected… 
Star formation sustained by gas accretion
Numerical simulations predict that metal-poor gas accretion from the cosmic web fuels the formation of disk galaxies. This paper discusses how cosmic gas accretion controls star formation, and
How Gas Accretion Feeds Galactic Disks

Gas Accretion and Star-Formation Rates with IFUs and Background Quasars
Star-forming galaxies (SFGs) are forming stars at a regular pace, forming the so-called main sequence (MS). However, all studies of their gas content show that their gas reservoir ought to be
Gas Accretion in Star-Forming Galaxies
Cold-mode gas accretion onto galaxies is a direct prediction of LCDM simulations and provides galaxies with fuel that allows them to continue to form stars over the lifetime of the Universe. Given
Quasars Probing Galaxies: I. Signatures of Gas Accretion at Redshift Approximately 0.2
We describe the kinematics of circumgalactic gas near the galactic plane, combining new measurements of galaxy rotation curves and spectroscopy of background quasars. The sightlines pass within
MEGAPARSEC RELATIVISTIC JETS LAUNCHED FROM AN ACCRETING SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLE IN AN EXTREME SPIRAL GALAXY
The radio galaxy phenomenon is directly connected to mass-accreting, spinning supermassive black holes found in the active galactic nuclei. It is still unclear how the collimated jets of relativistic
Cool circumgalactic gas of passive galaxies from cosmological inflow
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) of galaxies consists of a multi-phase gas with components at very different temperatures, from 104 K to 107 K. One of the greatest puzzles about this medium is the
Cold Filamentary Accretion and the Formation of Metal-poor Globular Clusters and Halo Stars
We propose that cold filamentary accretion in massive galaxies at high redshift can lead to the formation of star-forming clumps in the halos of these galaxies without the presence of dark matter
Metal-poor, Cool Gas in the Circumgalactic Medium of a z = 2.4 Star-forming Galaxy: Direct Evidence for Cold Accretion?
In our current galaxy formation paradigm, high-redshift galaxies are predominantly fueled by accretion of cool, metal-poor gas from the intergalactic medium. Hydrodynamical simulations predict that
THE GAS INFLOW AND OUTFLOW RATE IN STAR-FORMING GALAXIES AT z ∼ 1.4
We try to constrain the gas inflow and outflow rate of star-forming galaxies at z ∼ 1.4 by employing a simple analytic model for the chemical evolution of galaxies. The sample is constructed based on

ORBITING CIRCUMGALACTIC GAS AS A SIGNATURE OF COSMOLOGICAL ACCRETION
We use cosmological smoothed particle hydrodynamic simulations to study the kinematic signatures of cool gas accretion onto a pair of well-resolved galaxy halos. We find that cold-flow streams and
Gas accretion as the origin of chemical abundance gradients in distant galaxies
TLDR
The central gas has been diluted by the accretion of primordial gas, as predicted by ‘cold flow’ models, and ‘inverse’ gradients, with the central, star-forming regions having lower metallicities than less active ones, which is opposite to what is seen in local galaxies.
Cold streams in early massive hot haloes as the main mode of galaxy formation
TLDR
‘stream-fed galaxies’ are reported, formed from steady, narrow, cold gas streams that penetrate the shock-heated media of massive dark matter haloes and keep the rotating disk configuration intact, although turbulent and broken into giant star-forming clumps that merge into a central spheroid.
A study of the gas–star formation relation over cosmic time
We use the first systematic data sets of CO molecular line emission in z∼ 1–3 normal star-forming galaxies (SFGs) for a comparison of the dependence of galaxy-averaged star formation rates on

Hydro-cosmological simulations reveal that massive galaxies at high redshift are fed by long narrow streams of merging galaxies and a smoother component of cold gas. We postprocess seven
The rates and modes of gas accretion on to galaxies and their gaseous haloes
We study the rate at which gas accretes on to galaxies and haloes and investigate whether the accreted gas was shocked to high temperatures before reaching a galaxy. For this purpose we use a suite
Accretion of gas on to nearby spiral galaxies
We present evidence for cosmological gas accretion onto spiral galaxies in the local universe. The accretion is seen through its effects on the dynamics of the extra-planar neutral gas. The accretion
