GASP XXIX-unwinding the arms of spiral galaxies via ram-pressure stripping (2020)
Journal Article
Bellhouse, C., McGee, S. L., Smith, R., Poggianti, B. M., Jaffé, Y. L., Kraljic, K., …Shin, J. (2020). GASP XXIX-unwinding the arms of spiral galaxies via ram-pressure stripping. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 500(1), 1285-1312. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/staa3298

We present the first study of the effect of ram pressure ‘unwinding’ the spiral arms of cluster galaxies. We study 11 ram-pressure stripped galaxies from GASP (GAs Stripping Phenomena in galaxies) in which, in addition to more commonly observed ‘jell...

Previous studies have revealed a population of galaxies in galaxy clusters with ram pressure stripped (RPS) tails of gas and embedded young stars. We observed 1.4 GHz continuum and H I emission with the Very Large Array in its B-configuration in two... Read More about The ram pressure stripped radio tails of galaxies in the Coma cluster.

Within the GASP survey, aimed at studying the effect of ram pressure stripping on star formation quenching in cluster galaxies, we analyze here ALMA observations of the jellyfish galaxy JW100. We find an unexpected large amount of molecular gas (∼2.5... Read More about GASP.

Its hot gas temperature is 0.8 keV at the group center and rises to... Read More about Extended X-ray study of M49: The frontier of the Virgo cluster.

A new class of x-ray tails of early-type galaxies and subclusters in galaxy clusters: Slingshot tails versus ram pressure stripped tails (2019)
Journal Article

A new class of x-ray tails of early-type galaxies and subclusters in galaxy clusters: Slingshot tails versus ram pressure stripped tails. The Astrophysical journal, 874(2), 112. https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ab0c06

We show that there is a new class of gas tails—slingshot tails—that form as a subhalo (i.e., a subcluster or early-type cluster galaxy) moves away from the cluster center toward the apocenter of its orbit. These tails can point perpendicular or even...

We study a merger of the NGC 4839 group with the Coma cluster using X-ray observations from the XMM–Newton and Chandra telescopes. X-ray data show two prominent features: (i) a long (∼600 kpc in projection) and bent tail of cool gas trailing (towards...
