A new estimator of resolved molecular gas in nearby galaxies

15 Sep 2020 Chown Ryan Li Cheng Parker Laura C. Wilson Christine D. Li Niu Gao Yang

A relationship between dust-reprocessed light from recent star formation and the amount of star-forming gas in a galaxy produces a correlation between WISE 12 $\mu$m emission and CO line emission. Here we explore this correlation on kiloparsec scales with CO(1-0) maps from EDGE-CALIFA matched in resolution to WISE 12 $\mu$m images... (read more)
