Description We propose to use Herschel-PACS spectroscopy of the [C II] 158 micron and [O I] 63 micron lines to observe a sample of 16 low-redshift infrared-luminous galaxies, at log L_IR = 11.8 to 12.3 Lsolar, that are distinguished by large size and non-merger structure. These galaxies are interesting because they have high star formation rate activity spread over a large physical area, rather than concentrated into extremely dense regions as in the nucleus of a major merger, as in most local ULIRGs. They are potentially good analogs for high-redshift IR-luminous galaxies, which appear to have far-IR spectral shapes different from local ULIRGs. [C II] is a major cooling line in photo-dissociation regions and [O I] and [C II] probe the physical conditions and UV intensity in IR-emitting regions. In a few extreme lensed high-z ULIRGs where [C II] can be measured, the high-z objects have L([C II])-L(FIR) ratios that are high, more like those of local starbursts than local ULIRGs. At z>1, much of the star formation in massive galaxies is occurring at LIRG and ULIRG levels, and U-LIRGs dominate the IR luminosity density. Understanding star forming regions in high-z IR-luminous galaxies is necessary to understand the conditions in which most of the stars in massive galaxies formed. The proposed measurements of [C II] and [O I] in this local sample of high-z analogs will test the hypothesis that redshift evolution in the IR SED shape and the [C II]-FIR ratio are due to different physical conditions in high-z IR-luminous galaxies, because of the larger physical extent of the star forming area.

Mission Description Herschel was launched on 14 May 2009! It is the fourth 'cornerstone' mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it is the largest space telescope ever launched. It is performing photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-671 ┬Ám range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and groundbased facilities.
