Outline l.jpg
Outline

  • Missing satellites and HVCs

  • Known or suspected dark galaxies

    LGS 3 + HVC

    Complex H

  • High-resolution maps of HVCs

    Are all HVCs dark galaxies?

Cdm and the missing satellites l.jpg
CDM and the Missing Satellites

CDM predicts large numbers of subhalos (~300-1000 for a Milky Way-sized galaxy)

Milky Way only has ~15 known satellites

What happened to the rest of them?

Are hvcs the missing dwarfs l.jpg
Are HVCs The Missing Dwarfs?

  • There are thousands of HVCs in the Local Group, and hundreds of them are compact and isolated

  • HVCs have the right masses if they are located at distances of several hundred kpc

Ringberg - Dwarf Galaxies as Cosmological Probes


Problems with hvcs l.jpg
Problems with HVCs

  • Unknown distances and masses

  • Difficult to study at high resolution

Key question: How far away are typical HVCs?

What is hvc 127 41 330 l.jpg
What is HVC 127-41-330?

  • Cloud of gas in Local Group

  • Likely at 700 kpc

  • MHI = 5.5 x 106 M

  • Dark matter-dominated

  • No stars

Robishaw, Simon, & Blitz 2002

The first dark galaxy!

Location in the Galactic plane makes it unique

Complex h kinematics l.jpg
Complex H Kinematics

Lockman 2003

For b < 15, cosb ≈ 1 and sinb ≈ b

Therefore dVLSR/db = Vz

Inclined, retrograde, circular orbit at

d = 27 kpc fits the data MHI = 2 x 107M

Is Complex H a dwarf galaxy?

  • In the IR, many

    sources are visible

    towards the core of

    Complex H

  • CO observations show that they are all in the Milky Way

SFR < 5 x 10-4 M yr-1

Simon et al. 2006

Is Complex H a dwarf galaxy?

  • What about an old population?

sequence and red giant

tracks for d = 2 kpc

2MASS CMD of Complex H

Dwarf galaxy tracks

for d = 18, 27, 36 kpc

M* < 106 M

What is complex h l.jpg
What is Complex H?

  • Cloud of gas near Milky Way

  • Likely at 27 kpc

  • MHI = 2.0 x 107 M

  • No star formation; MHI/M* > 20

If dark matter

If no dark matter

The first cold accretion flow?

Are many or most HVCs dark galaxies?

Ringberg - Dwarf Galaxies as Cosmological Probes


Hvc models l.jpg
HVC Models

Extra/circumgalactic

(Oort 1966, Blitz et al. 1999)

- d = few hundred kpc

- m = 105 - 107 M

- dark matter halos

- gravitationally bound

Hot halo

(Maller & Bullock 2004)

- d ~ 150 kpc

- m = 105 - 107 M

- no dark matter

- pressure-confined

Tidal debris

(no formal model)

- d = 10 - 50 kpc

- m = 103 - 105 M

- no dark matter

- not bound

Questions about the bulk of the HVC population:

  • Are they gravitationally bound?

  • Do they have dark matter halos?

Ringberg - Dwarf Galaxies as Cosmological Probes


Are hvcs bound l.jpg
Are HVCs bound?

  • If not, calculate expansion timescale

    • 5.3 x 107 yr < t < 2.5 x 108 yr

    • Not stable for very long

  • What about dynamical masses?

    • Assuming virialization:

      300 (d/100 kpc)-1 < Mvir/MHI < 2100 (d/100 kpc)-1

      Must have dark matter to be bound!

Summary l.jpg
Summary

  • HVC 127-41

    • Cloud kinematics require dark matter, no stars -> dark galaxy

  • Complex H

    • Large HI mass, no star formation, no stars -> dark galaxy or cold accretion stream?

  • Other HVCs

    • Several also show signs of rotation

    • If the rotation is real, they are DM-dominated

HVCs appear compatible with the dark galaxy hypothesis
