Galactic Winds and Their Cosmological Implications

Sylvain Veilleux
University of Maryland

Time
 
Mon. February 27, 2012     11:30 AM     Stirling 201

Abstract
 
Galactic winds are the primary mechanism by which energy and metals are recycled in galaxies and are deposited into the intergalactic medium. New observations are revealing the ubiquity of this process, particularly at high redshift. I will describe the physics behind these winds, discuss the observational evidence for them in nearby star-forming and active galaxies and in the high-redshift universe, and consider the implications of energetic winds for the formation and evolution of galaxies and the intergalactic medium. To inspire future research, I will conclude with a set of observational and theoretical challenges.
