    • Abstract

       

      Atomic hydrogen is a fundamental constituent of galaxies, and is the primary fuel for star formation. Understanding how the atomic hydrogen content of galaxies evolves with time is thus critical to understanding galaxy evolution. In this article, we discuss how one measures the atomic hydrogen content of distant galaxies, and what these measurements tell us about the evolution of our Universe.
