We analyze intergalactic H I and O VI absorbers with v 3 Mpc to the nearest L{sub *} galaxy), although at v 0.1 L{sub *} galaxy. The absorber properties depend on {rho}, but the relations are not simple correlations. For four absorbers with {rho} = 50-350 kpc from an edge-on galaxy with known orientation of its rotation, we find no clear relation between absorber velocities and the rotation curve of the underlying galaxy. Formore » {rho} 0.1 L {sub *} galaxies is 100% (70%) for field galaxies… Expand

The Baryon Census in a Multiphase Intergalactic Medium: 30% of the Baryons May Still Be Missing
Although galaxies, groups, and clusters contain {approx}10% of the baryons, many more reside in the photoionized and shocked-heated intergalactic medium (IGM) and in the circumgalactic medium (CGM).Expand
