This first 21cm data release provides robust detections or strong upper limits (1.4MHI<5%-10% of stellar mass M*) for ∼94% of RESOLVE. We examine global atomic gas-to-stellar mass ratios (G/S) in relation to galaxy environment using several metrics: group dark matter halo mass Mh, central/satellite designation, relative mass density of the cosmic web, and distance to the nearest massive group. We find that at fixed M*, satellites have decreasing G/S with increasing Mh starting clearly at Mh∼1012M, suggesting the presence of starvation and/or stripping mechanisms associated with halo gas heating in intermediate-mass groups. The analogous relationship for centrals is uncertain because halo abundance matching builds in relationships between central G/S, stellar mass, and halo mass, which depend on the integrated group property used as a proxy for halo mass (stellar or baryonic mass). On larger scales G/S trends are less sensitive to the abundance matching method. At fixed Mh≤1012M, the fraction of gas-poor centrals increases with large-scale structure density. In overdense regions, we identify a rare population of gas-poor centrals in low-mass (Mh<1011.4M) halos primarily located within ∼1.5x the virial radius of more massive (Mh>1012M) halos, suggesting that gas stripping and/or starvation may be induced by interactions with larger halos or the surrounding cosmic web. We find that the detailed relationship between G/S and environment varies when we examine different subvolumes of RESOLVE independently, which we suggest may be a signature of assembly bias. Description: The REsolved Spectroscopy Of a Local VolumE (RESOLVE) survey is a volume-limited census of galaxies in the local universe with the goal of accounting for baryonic and dark matter mass within a statistically complete subset of the z=0 galaxy population. A complete description of the survey design will be presented in S. J. Kannappan et al. (2016, in preparation). This paper presents new 21cm observations, but an optical spectroscopic survey is under way, primarily with the SOAR 4.1m telescope, and also using SALT, Gemini, and the AAT. The blindly detected 21cm sources in the standard ALFALFA catalog (Giovanelli+ 2005AJ....130.2598G) are cross-matched with RESOLVE using a match radius of 2', corresponding to the spatial resolution of the final ALFALFA data cubes. Additionally, we search the ALFALFA data cubes at the positions of all galaxies that lack counterparts within the standard ALFALFA catalogs. To complete the RESOLVE HI census, new 21cm observations were carried out with the Robert C. Byrd New Green Bank Telescope (GBT, programs 11B-056, 13A-276, 13B-246, 14A-441) and Arecibo Observatory (programs a2671, a2812, a2852). GBT data were acquired over a total of 738hr between 2011 August and 2014 July. Arecibo data were acquired over a total of 554hr in 2012 March and again between 2013 July and 2016 May. File Summary:

Note (1): Telescope used for observation as follows: GBT = Green Bank 100m (373 instances); AO = Arecibo 300m (365 instances); ALFALFA = Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey (Arecibo 300m; 1408 instances); S05-AO = Springob+ (2005, VIII/77) catalog (Arecibo 300m). S05-GB300 = Springob+ (2005, VIII/77) catalog (Green Bank 300ft) Note (2): Method used as follows: 0 = No correction (flag indicating confusion = 0; 1913 instances). 1 = The corrected flux, Fc, is determined by summing the channels within the predicted W50. The statistical uncertainty, σFc,stat, is calculated following Equation (1): σFrmsΔV(Nch)0.5 where σrms is the rms noise of the spectrum measured over a signal-free region, ΔV is the velocity resolution in km/s, and Nch is the number of channels in the integration -- but an additional systematic uncertainty, σFc,sys, is reported equaling the total flux within any channels overlapping multiple predicted galaxy linewidths (182 instances). 2 = If one half of the primary target's 21cm profile is judged to be uncontaminated, the flux is measured within the unconfused half and doubled to yield an estimate of Fc. A 20% systematic error is assigned to account for possible asymmetry in the 21cm profile (49 instances). 3 = If one half of the companion galaxy's 21cm profile is judged to be uncontaminated, this unconfused side is integrated, doubled, and subtracted from the total flux of the blended profile to obtain Fc. A systematic uncertainty of 20% of the companion's total flux is assigned to the target galaxy, again to account for possible profile asymmetries. This method is not applicable if there are more than two potentially blended sources within the 21cm beam (20 instances). See Section 2.3.2 for further explanations.

Note (1): General Notes: Environment metrics are only provided for galaxies lying within our survey definitions (stellar mass >108.9M or baryonic mass >109.3M. This table includes galaxies that fall within the buffer regions (see S2.5) but still lie above the stellar or baryonic mass completeness limits. Note (2): By definition, all members of a group have the same values for each of the environment metrics. See section 2.5.1. Note (3): Distances to nearest halo with mass >1012M and heliocentric velocity separation <500km/s are given relative to the virial radius of the nearest Mh>1012 group, e.g., if a Mh=1011M halo lies at the virial radius of a Mh=1012.5M halo, then Dist-s=1. Note (4): dist-s and dist-b values only calculated for Mh<1012M groups. Note (5): Flag=1 indicates that the corresponding distance may be unreliable due to proximity to survey boundary.
