Southern GEMS groups. II. HI distribution, mass functions and HI deficient galaxies. Kilborn V.A., Forbes D.A., Barnes D.G., Koribalski B.S., Brough S., Kern K. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 400, 1962-1985 (2009)> =2009MNRAS.400.1962K

Wide-field imaging of the groups was obtained with the 20cm multibeam system on the 64m Parkes telescope. We have detected 10 previously uncatalogued HI sources, one of which has no visible optical counterpart. We examine the HI properties of the groups, compared to their X-ray characteristics, finding that those groups with a higher X-ray temperature and luminosity contain less HI per galaxy. Description: The full GEMS (Group Evolution Multi-wavelength Study) sample includes 60 galaxy groups, chosen from 10 optical catalogues, the majority with recession velocities between 1000 and 3000km/s and with a ROSAT PSPC (position sensitive proportional counter) exposure time of more than 10000s within 20-arcmin of the group position. We chose 16 groups that were near or south of declination 0°, for wide-field HI imaging at Parkes. The groups selected for HI observations have a variety of X-ray properties, from just the central galaxy being detected (six groups), to diffuse group-scale X-ray emission (eight groups), to no X-ray detection at all (two groups).

Note (1): Three sources from the NGC 1407 group were also detected in the NGC 1332 group: GEMSN14071 = GEMSN13322; GEMSN14073 = GEMSN13323; GEMSN14074 = GEMSN13325. These sources are listed in both groups so the reader can compare and contrast the derived values. Note (2): assuming group distance as given in Table 2

Note (1): Sources have ATCA observations, and thus a confirmed optical counterpart (except in the case of GEMSN37832 where no optical counterpart is seen). The references are as follows: 1 = McKay et al. (2004MNRAS.352.1121M) 2 = Kilborn et al. (2005MNRAS.356...77K) 3 = Kilborn et al. (2006MNRAS.371..739K) 4 = Kern et al. (2008MNRAS.384..305K) Note (2): the * indicates that previously catalogued optical counterpart is further than 8arcmin from the central HI position. Confirmation of optical counterpart is required.
