Shocks, outflows and metallicity gradients in normal star-forming galaxies

We are conducting a survey of nearby normal star-forming galaxies (i.e., those like our Milky Way) to study how they eject their gas and heavy elements. This kind of gas ejection behavior, a.k.a. ``outflows'', is known to exist in galaxies which are actively forming stars, and will significant impact on how a galaxy evolves with time. We would like to know how outflows affect normal star-forming galaxies.
