Bahcall & Spitzer (1969): Absorbers are related to galaxies

Rmax

Steidel et al. (1994-1997)

Mo & Miralda-Escude (1996)

Fukugita & Peebles (2005)

  • Galaxies : 0.07-3L*

  • Unit covering factor up to Rmax

  • Rmax ~ Lα (α~0.1―0.4)

  • Metalicity (~0.1 solar)

  • No correlation w/galaxy inclination and or rotation

observations

Covering factor for REW>0.6A absorber

  • SDSS: 106 photometric quasars

  • Several dozens of close (<100kpc) separation pairs (observed w/APO & HET)

  • Do MgII absorbers lie in special environments (massive halos? groups?)

  • How different are quasar environments from galaxy ones

  • Unification on large scales

  • Implications for galaxy/quasar reionization effects?

  • Studying absorbers by emission

  • (metalicity/mass)
