Spatially-resolved Schmidt–Kennicutt diagram in the Emerald, for the four star-forming clumps identified with CLUMPFIND (red stars) and the intraclump regions (open blue stars), the spatially resolved pixel-by-pixel analysis of the Ruby (light blue circles, Cañameras et al. 2017a) and its luminosity-weighted properties (black stars), and for other galaxy samples taken from the literature. These samples include spatially-resolved studies of the Eyelash (green triangles, Swinbank et al. 2011) and SDP.81 (yellow triangles, Hatsukade et al. 2015), submillimeter galaxies at z ∼ 2 (green upside-down triangles, Bothwell et al. 2010), normal star-forming galaxies at z = 1–2.3 (blue squares, Tacconi et al. 2010), and local starbursts (black circles, Kennicutt 1998). The dashed lines labeled “SB” and “MS” show the ridge lines of “starburst” and “main-sequence” galaxies of Daddi et al. (2010), respectively (see also Genzel et al. 2010). Typical error bars are shown in the lower-right corner. The small horizontal and vertical arrows indicate the expected offsets when using R4, 1 = 0.45 instead of 0.55, and the Salpeter stellar IMF instead of the Chabrier IMF, respectively (see text for details).
