Abstract

The gaseous components in the disk-halo interface provide diagnostics for the global
state of the dynamical ISM in star-forming disk galaxies. This is not only of interest to
constrain models of the ISM but also important input for the current discussion about
the importance of gas infall vs. outflow for the evolution of galaxies.

Following a short introduction into the general scenario some results for the ionization
structure and kinematics of the diffuse ionized gas from IFU and Fabry-Perot spectroscopy
will be presented and discussed.
