Worried about the DIG? So are we! Like cirrus clouds are important for the weather forecast, the diffuse gas in a galaxy also impacts our understanding of galaxies. Strong line methods used to infer gas-phase metallicities are especially affected. If would like to know more, have a look at our papers and conference proceedings below.
