Galaxy interactions in compact groups - II. Abundance and kinematic anomalies in HCG 91c
Galaxies in Hickson Compact Group 91 (HCG 91) were observed with the WiFeS integral field spectrograph as part of our ongoing campaign targeting the ionized gas physics and kinematics inside star-forming members of compact groups. Here, we report the discovery of HII regions with abundance and kinematic offsets in the otherwise unremarkable star-forming spiral HCG 91c. The optical emission line analysis of this galaxy reveals that at least three HII regions harbour an oxygen abundance ~0.15 dex...[Show more]
