  • We use dust masses (Mdust) derived from far-infrared data and molecular gas masses (Mmol) based on CO luminosity, to calibrate proxies based on a combination of the galaxy Balmer decrement, disk inclination and gas metallicity. We use such proxies to estimate Mdust and Mmol in the local SDSS sample of star forming galaxies (SFGs). We study the distribution of Mdust and Mmol along and across the Main Sequence (MS) of SFGs. We find that Mdust and Mmol increase rapidly along the MS with increasing… CONTINUE READING
