Lemma 48.22.3. Let $X$ be a connected Noetherian scheme and let $\omega _ X$ be a dualizing module on $X$. The support of $\omega _ X$ is the union of the irreducible components of maximal dimension with respect to any dimension function and $\omega _ X$ is a coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module having property $(S_2)$.

**Proof.**
By our conventions discussed above there exists a dualizing complex $\omega _ X^\bullet $ such that $\omega _ X$ is the leftmost nonvanishing cohomology sheaf. Since $X$ is connected, any two dimension functions differ by a constant (Topology, Lemma 5.20.3). Hence we may use the dimension function associated to $\omega _ X^\bullet $ (Lemma 48.2.7). With these remarks in place, the lemma now follows from Dualizing Complexes, Lemma 47.17.5 and the definitions (in particular Cohomology of Schemes, Definition 30.11.1).
