RESOLVING IONIZATION and METALLICITY on PARSEC SCALES ACROSS MRK 71 with HST-WFC3

James, Bethan; Auger, Matthew; Aloisi, Alessandra; Calzetti, Daniela; Kewley, Lisa

Description

Blue compact dwarf (BCD) galaxies in the nearby universe provide a means for studying feedback mechanisms and star formation processes in low-metallicity environments in great detail. Owing to their vicinity, these local analogs to primordial young galaxies are well suited for high-resolution studies that are unfeasible for high-redshift galaxies. Here we present Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Camera 3 observations of one such BCD, Mrk 71, one of the most powerful local starbursts known, in...[Show more]
