We present observations of the dust and atomic gas phase in seven dwarf irregular galaxies of the M81 group from the Spitzer SINGS and VLA THINGS surveys. The Spitzer observations provide a first glimpse of the nature of the nonatomic ISM in these metal-poor (Z ∼ 0.1 Z ⊙), quiescent (SFR ∼ 0.001-0.1 M ⊙ yr -1) dwarf galaxies. Most detected dust emission is restricted to H I column densities >1 × 10 21 cm -2, and almost all regions of high H I column density (>2.5 × 10 21 cm -2) have associated...[Show more]
