We study the correlation between far-infared/submm dust emission and atomic gas column density in order to derive the properties of the high Galactic latitude, low density, Milky Way cirrus in the foreground of the Virgo cluster of galaxies. Dust emission maps from 60 to 850 um are obtained from SPIRE observations carried out within the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey, complemented by IRAS-IRIS and Planck-HFI maps. Data from the Arecibo legacy Fast ALFA Survey is used to derive atomic gas column… 

The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS)

Aims. We present the first detection of diffuse dust in the intra-cluster medium of the Virgo cluster out to ∼0.4 virial radii, and study the radial variation of its properties on a radial scale of


We present the results of a deep imaging survey of the Virgo cluster of galaxies, concentrated around the cores of Virgo subclusters A and B. The goal of this survey was to detect and study very low

Dust emissivity and absorption cross section in DustPedia late-type galaxies

Aims. We compare the far-infrared to sub-millimetre dust emission properties measured in high Galactic latitude cirrus with those determined in a sample of 204 late-type DustPedia galaxies. The aim

A Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE)

NGC 4330 is one of the Virgo galaxies whose UV emission distributions show a tail structure. An associated tail structure is also observed in the HI and Hα emission distributions. Previous dynamical

The Quest for the Missing Dust. I. Restoring Large-scale Emission in Herschel Maps of Local Group Galaxies

Because the galaxies of the Local Group have such large angular sizes, much of their diffuse, large-angular-scale emission is filtered out by the Herschel data reduction process. In this work, we

The hyperluminous Compton-thick z ∼ 2 quasar nucleus of the hot DOG W1835+4355 observed by NuSTAR

We present a 155 ks NuSTAR observation of the z ∼ 2 hot dust-obscured galaxy (hot DOG) W1835+4355. We extracted spectra from the two NuSTAR detectors and analyzed them jointly with the archival

Measuring the total infrared light from galaxy clusters at z = 0.5–1.6: connecting stellar populations to dusty star formation

Massive galaxy clusters undergo strong evolution from z~1.6 to z~0.5, with overdense environments at high-z characterized by abundant dust-obscured star formation and stellar mass growth which

Fraction of bolometric luminosity absorbed by dust in DustPedia galaxies

Aims. We aim to study the fraction of stellar radiation absorbed by dust, fabs, in 814 galaxies of different morphological types. The targets constitute the vast majority (93%) of the DustPedia

The WISSH quasars Project: II. Giant star nurseries in hyper-luminous quasars

Studying the coupling between the energy output produced by the central quasar and the host galaxy is fundamental to fully understand galaxy evolution. Quasar feedback is indeed supposed to

Testing spatial uniformity of the CR spectrum in the local ISM with γ-ray observations

Gamma-ray observations of nearby radio-line-emitting gas structures in the interstellar medium allow us to probe the spectrum of cosmic rays (CRs). In this paper, we analysed Fermi Large Area



The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey - IX. Dust-to-gas mass ratio and metallicity gradients in four Virgo spiral galaxies

Context. Using Herschel data from the Open Time Key Project the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey (HeViCS) , we investigated the relationship between the metallicity gradients expressed by metal

The Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey. IV. Resolved dust analysis of spiral galaxies

We present a resolved dust analysis of three of the largest angular size spiral galaxies, NGC 4501 and NGC 4567/8, in the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey (HeViCS) science demonstration field. Herschel


Using the Planck far-infrared and Arecibo GALFA 21 cm line surveys, we identified a set of isolated interstellar clouds (approximately degree-sized on the sky and comprising 100 solar masses) and

Galactic cold cores - V. Dust opacity

Context. The project Galactic Cold Cores has carried out Herschel photometric observations of interstellar clouds where the Planck satellite survey has located cold and compact clumps. The sources

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 dust-Hi correlation is used to characterize the emission properties of dust in the diffuse interstellar medium (ISM) from far infrared wavelengths to microwave frequencies. The field of this

Dust variations in the diffuse interstellar medium: constraints on Milky Way dust from Planck-HFI observations

Context. The Planck-HFI all-sky survey from 353 to 857 GHz combined with the IRAS data at 100 m (3000 GHz, IRIS version of the data) show that the dust properties vary from line of sight to line of
