We outline the results from a FUSE Team program designed to characterize OVI absorption in the disk of the Milky Way. We find that OVI absorption occurs throughout most of the Galactic plane, at least out to several kpc from the Sun, and that it is distributed smoothly enough for the column density to decline with height above the disk and with distance in the plane. However, the OVI absorbing gas is clumpy, and moves at peculiar velocities relative to that expected from Galactic rotation. We… Expand

The kinetic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich tomography II: probing the circumgalactic medium
We propose the use of the kinetic Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (kSZ) effect to probe the circumgalactic medium (CGM), with the aid of a spectroscopic survey covering the same area of a SZ survey. One canExpand
