The Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey - VI. The Virgo cluster (II).


Abstract (from CDS):

We present 21-cm observations of a 5x1 deg2 region in the Virgo cluster, obtained as part of the Arecibo Galaxy Environment Survey. 13 cluster members are detected, together with 36 objects in the background. We compare and contrast the results from this area with a larger 10x2 deg2 region. We combine the two data sets to produce an Hi mass function, which shows a higher detection rate at low masses (but finds fewer massive galaxies) than less sensitive wider area surveys, such as ALFALFA. We find that the Hi-detected galaxies are distributed differently to the non-detections, both spatially and in velocity, providing further evidence that the cluster is still assembling. We use the Tully-Fisher relation to examine the possibility of morphological evolution. We find that highly deficient galaxies, as well as some early-type galaxies, have much lower velocity widths than the Tully-Fisher relation predicts, indicating gas loss via ram-pressure stripping. We also find that Hi detections without optical counterparts do not fit the predictions of the baryonic Tully-Fisher relation, implying that they are not primordial objects.
