Abstract: Gas that escapes from the Galactic disk, rises into the halo, cools and falls back, constitutes a ``Galactic fountain''. Three-dimensional simulations show that such a fountain model reproduces many of the features that have been observed in the Galaxy and other galaxies such as M31 and M33. Here, these results are reported.
