Title: Warm Ionized Gas Kinematics of CHILES Galaxies

Abstract: Processes governing the kinematics of gas in galaxies are a complex and important component in understanding the overall formation and evolution of galaxies in the universe. Observations of cold neutral hydrogen via 21-cm emission is a primary method for investigating gas motions on a galactic scale, tracing the recent star formation history by revealing infall or outflow in the form of non-circular motion in the measured velocity field. The non-circular motions of cold neutral gas often correspond to ionized gas motion as well. Thus, the proposed HexPak observations aim to get a complementary picture of the recent star formation history by tracing the kinematics of the ionized gas and the underlying stellar population in six galaxies for which deep 21-cm data has been obtained as part of the CHILES survey.
