AbstractWe analyse galaxies in 300 nearby groups and clusters identified in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey using a photometric gas mass indicator that is useful for estimating the degree to which the interstellar medium of a cluster galaxy has been depleted. We study the radial dependence of inferred gas mass fractions for galaxies of different stellar masses and stellar surface densities. At fixed cluster-centric distance and at fixed stellar mass, lower density galaxies are more strongly depleted of their gas than higher density galaxies. An analysis of depletion trends in the two-dimensional plane of stellar mass M-* and stellar mass surface density mu(*) reveals that gas depletion at fixed cluster-centric radius is much more sensitive to the density of a galaxy than to its mass. We suggest that low-density galaxies are more easily depleted of their gas, because they are more easily affected by ram-pressure and/or tidal forces. We also look at the dependence of our gas fraction/radius relations on the velocity dispersion of the cluster, finding no clear systematic trend.
