List of BERGER's Presentation(s) ( Updated 20/01/2011 11:29:38 )

Precise if your presentation is oral or a poster : Invi.Talk
Title of your presentation : GRBs and the ISM of High Redshift Galaxies

The launch of the Swift satellite in late 2004 enabled rapid spectroscopy for a large number of gamma-ray bursts at redshifts, z~1-6. Thanks to their extreme brightness and location within the star forming regions of galaxies, GRBs provide a direct view of the interstellar medium properties on a variety of scales. In this talk I will present the main results from several years of spectroscopic observations, including the distribution of neutral hydrogen column densities and gas metallicities, and abundance patterns. In addition, follow-up observations of the galaxies with Keck, Magellan, and Spitzer allow us to construct the first mass-metallicity relations at z>2.
