The origin of the far-infrared emission from the nearby radio galaxy M 87 remains a matter of debate. Some studies find evidence of a far-infrared excess due to thermal dust emission, whereas others propose that the far-infrared emission can be explained by synchrotron emission without the need for an additional dust emission component. We present Herschel PACS and SPIRE observations of M 87, taken as part of the science demonstration phase observations of the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey. We…

Abstract The origin of the far-infrared emission from the nearby radio galaxy M87 remains a matter of debate. Some studies find evidence of a far-infrared excess due to thermal dust emission, whereas

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey - XIII. Dust in early-type galaxies

Aims. We study the dust content of a large optical input sample of 910 early-type galaxies (ETG) in the Virgo cluster, also extending to the dwarf ETG, and examine the results in relation to those on

HERSCHEL FAR-INFRARED PHOTOMETRY OF THE SWIFT BURST ALERT TELESCOPE ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEI SAMPLE OF THE LOCAL UNIVERSE. I. PACS OBSERVATIONS

Far-Infrared (FIR) photometry from the Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer on the Herschel Space Observatory is presented for 313 nearby, hard X-ray selected galaxies from the 58 month Swift

Mid-infrared colour gradients and the colour-magnitude relation in Virgo early-type galaxies

We make use of Spitzer imaging between 4 and 16 μm and near-infrared data at 2.2 μm to investigate the nature and distribution of the mid-infrared emission in a sample of early-type galaxies (ETGs)

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey - XII. FIR properties of optically selected Virgo cluster galaxies

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey (HeViCS) is the deepest, confusion-limited survey of the Virgo Cluster at far-infrared (FIR) wavelengths. The entire survey at full depth covers similar to 55 deg(2)

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey XVI: a cluster inventory ⋆

Herschel far-infrared (FIR) observations are used to construct Virgo cluster galaxy luminosity functions and to show that the cluster lacks the very bright and the numerous faint sources detected in

PACS photometry of the herschel reference survey - far-infrared/ submillimetre colours as tracers of dust properties in nearby galaxies

We present Herschel/PACS 100 and 160 mu m integrated photometry for the 323 galaxies in the Herschel Reference Survey (HRS), a K-band, volume-limited sample of galaxies in the local Universe. Once

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey – VIII. The Bright Galaxy Sample★

We describe the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey and the first data that cover the complete survey area (four 4 x 4 deg2 regions). We use these data to measure and compare the global far-infrared

Dust spectral energy distributions of nearby galaxies: an insight from the Herschel Reference Survey

Although it accounts only for a small fraction of the baryonic mass, dust has a profound impact on the physical processes at play in galaxies. Thus, to understand the evolution of galaxies, it is

The Herschel Fornax Cluster Survey II: FIR properties of optically selected Fornax cluster galaxies

The Herschel Fornax Cluster Survey is a deep, far-infrared (FIR) survey of the Fornax cluster. The survey is in five Herschel bands (100-500 mu m) and covers an area of 16 deg(2) centred on NGC 1399.

THE ROLE OF THE SYNCHROTRON COMPONENT IN THE MID-INFRARED SPECTRUM OF M 87

We study in detail the mid-infrared (MIR) Spitzer-IRS spectrum of M 87 in the range 5–20 μm. Thanks to the high sensitivity of our Spitzer-IRS spectra we can disentangle the stellar and nuclear

Passive early-type galaxies (ETGs) provide an ideal laboratory for studying the interplay between dust formation around evolved stars and its subsequent destruction in a hot gas. Using Spitzer-IRS

We present the complete set of ISOPHOT observations of 3CR radio galaxies and quasars, which are contained in the ISO Data Archive, providing 75 mid- and far-infrared spectral energy distributions

X-Ray and Optical Filaments in M87

We compare a very deep X-ray image of M87, at the center of the Virgo Cluster, to high-quality optical images of the low-excitation emission-line gas in the same region. There are striking

New X-ray observations with XMM-Newton show a lack of spectral evidence for large amounts of cooling and condensing gas in the centers of galaxy clusters believed to harbour strong cooling flows.

Thermal and Nonthermal Infrared Emission from M87

We discuss images of M87 from 3.6 to 160 μm obtained with Spitzer. As found previously, there is an excess in the far-infrared over a simple power-law interpolation from the radio to the resolved
