Abstract: Inflowing gas that reaches the disk of our galaxy can replenish its interstellar medium with material that can be used to form the next generation of stars. In this talk, we will survey gaseous inflows that are in different stages of accretion, including gas that is presently interacting with the Milky Way's disk. We will further discuss how the environments that surround these clouds impact their properties. Detailed investigations of the Milky Way's gas flows in both emission- and absorption-line spectroscopy provide us with crucial insight on how these processes occur at greater distances where they cannot be fully resolved.
