Abstract: The Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 509 was subject to an extensive multi-wavelegth campaign in 2009. The study of the X-ray high-resultion spectrum indicates the presence of a warm absorber (WA) with at least 5 discrete ionization components in 3 velocity regimes. The HST/COS UV spectrum reveals a complex absorber with 13 kinematic components. The absorbing gas may reside in high-density low-ionization clouds responsible for the UV absorption, which are embedded in a less dense highly ionized wind responsible for the X-ray absorption features, although other scenarios are yet to be tested.
