A census of oxygen in star-forming galaxies: An empirical model linking metallicities, star formation rates, and outflows

Zahid, H J; Dima, G I; Kewley, Lisa; Erb, D K; Dave, R


In this contribution, we present the first census of oxygen in star-forming galaxies in the local universe. We examine three samples of galaxies with metallicities and star formation rates (SFRs) at z = 0.07, 0.8, and 2.26, including the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and DEEP2 survey. We infer the total mass of oxygen produced and mass of oxygen found in the gas-phase from our local SDSS sample. The star formation history is determined by requiring that galaxies evolve along the relation...[Show more]
