Galactic fountain in the Milky Way

Scheme of the galactic fountain framework: fountain clouds are ejected from the disc by stellar feedback and interact with the galactic hot corona, triggering its condensation and subsequent accretion. This process can be observed in emission (cold gas in the front and in condensing knots) and ionised absorption lines (in the warm-hot wakes).
