[34.06] Structure Formation in Tidal Debris

J. E. Hibbard (NRAO)

Tidal tails are found to posses a wide range of optical and gaseous sub-structure, on scales from Super Star Clusters up to Tidal Dwarf Galaxies. In this talk, I present results from recent VLA and HST observations of tidal tails, and explore what the limited kinematic information available says about the dynamical nature of these structures.
