An inventory of supershells in nearby galaxies: first results from THINGS

Bagetakos, Ioannis; Brinks, Elias; Walter, Fabian; de Blok, Willem


The HI Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS), is a 21cm HI line survey of a sample of 34 nearby (310 Mpc) galaxies (Walter et al. 2005). The observations were carried out with the VLA and have a velocity resolution of 5 km s1 or better and an angular resolution of 7 which at this distance range corresponds to a linear resolution of 100300 pc. One of the primary goals of THINGS is to look at the finescale structure of the Interstellar Medium (ISM) and examine how it varies as a function of Hubble type,...[Show more]
