21cm Absorption Lines at High Redshift from Intervening Galaxies

  • F. H. Briggs (a1)

Abstract

Radio absorption line observations of neutral hydrogen gas against extended radio sources offers the means to measure sizes and kinematics in intervening galaxies at all redshifts up to the maximum redshift where radio galaxies are detected. Such observations can therefore trace the evolution of galaxies at redshifts z ≳ 2 where the damped Lyman — α statistics indicate that the mass in neutral gas exceeded the mass in stars.
