Local analogs for high-redshift galaxies: resembling the physical conditions of the interstellar medium in high-redshift galaxies

Bian, Fuyan; Kewley, Lisa; Dopita, Michael A.; Juneau, Stephanie


We present a sample of local analogs for high-redshift galaxies selected in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The physical conditions of the interstellar medium (ISM) in these local analogs resemble those in high-redshift galaxies. These galaxies are selected based on their positions in the [O iii]/Hβ versus [N ii]/Hα nebular emission-line diagnostic diagram. We show that these local analogs share similar physical properties with high-redshift galaxies, including high specific star formation...[Show more]
