Abstract (from CDS):

object{NGC 1097} is a nearby SBb galaxy with a Seyfert nucleus and a bright starburst ring. We study the physical properties of the interstellar medium (ISM) in the ring using spatially resolved far-infrared spectral maps of the circumnuclear starburst ring of NGC 1097, obtained with the PACS spectrometer on board the Herschel Space Observatory. In particular, we map the important ISM cooling and diagnostic emission lines of [OI] 63µm, [OIII] 88µm, [NII] 122µm, [CII] 158µm and [NII] 205µm. We observe that in the [OI] 63µm, [OIII] 88µm, and [NII] 122µm line maps, the emission is enhanced in clumps along the NE part of the ring. We observe evidence of rapid rotation in the circumnuclear ring, with a rotation velocity of ∼220km/s (inclination uncorrected) measured in all lines. The [OI] 63µm/[CII] 158µm ratio varies smoothly throughout the central region, and is enhanced on the northeastern part of the ring, which may indicate a stronger radiation field. This enhancement coincides with peaks in the [OI] 63µm and [OIII] 88µm maps. Variations of the [NII] 122µm/[NII] 205µm ratio correspond to a range in the ionized gas density between 150 and 400cm–3.
