About Event

Mon 7 Mar 2005

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)
3700 San Martin Drive
Baltimore, MD 21218


The main topic of the miniworkshop is the interplay between galaxies and the surrounding intergalactic medium (IGM). The primary emphasiswill be to review and discuss the observational evidence for chemical,mechanical, and radiative flows in and out of galaxies in the low-redshift Universe. Additional discussions will compare this evidence to related processes in the high redshift Universe and to predictions of theoretical and numerical models. Agenda topics relating to the two-way exchanges of matter and energy between galaxies and their environments include:

  1. The Physics of Starburst and AGN Feedback
  2. Gas, Energy, and Photon Flows In and Out of Galaxies
  3. The Baryonic and Energy Content of Galaxy Haloes and Groups
  4. The Role of Environmental Effects (Tidal Interactions, Ram Pressure Stripping, etc.)

Ample time will be devoted to both current issues and future prospects for further progress in this field.


The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is a short ride away from major airports and train stations. Find information related to driving directions and relevant transportation resources on our Getting Here page.
