The structure and metallicity gradient in the extreme outer disk of NGC7793
Studies of outer regions of spirals disks are fundamental to our understanding of both the process of galaxy assembly and the subsequent secular evolution of galaxies. In an earlier series of papers, we explored the extent and abundance gradient in the outer disk of NGC300 and found an extended purely exponential disk with a metallicity gradient which flattens off in the outermost regions. We now continue the study of outskirts of pure disk spirals with another Sculptor Group spiral, NGC7793....[Show more]
