Overview

"Key Insights on Nearby Galaxies: A Far-Infrared Survey with Herschel" (KINGFISH, KPOT_rkennicu_1) is an imaging and spectroscopic survey of 61 nearby (d<30 Mpc) galaxies, chosen to cover a wide range of galaxy properties and local interstellar medium (ISM) environments. The broad goals of KINGFISH are to characterize the ISM of present-day galaxies, the heating and cooling of their gaseous and dust components, and to better understand the physical processes linking star formation and the ISM. If you use KINGFISH data, please cite Kennicutt et al. (2011).
