"Resolved Properties and Demographics of Ionized Gas Outflows at"

Outflows are ubiquitous at the peak epoch of star formation (z~1-3), and are likely to play an important role in shaping the growth and evolution of galaxies. Near-IR integral field spectroscopy is a powerful tool to investigate the physical properties of galactic winds at this epoch because it enables us to kinematically disentangle them from gravitational motions, and to map the launch sites, extent, and geometry of outflows. In this talk I will present the most recent results from our integral field studies of outflows at z~1-3. I will summarise the properties and scaling relations of outflows resolved on 1-2 kpc scales using SINFONI with adaptive optics, and place these results in the context of our study of global outflow properties and demographics from the KMOS3D survey.
