Abstract: For a commutative domain $ R$ with $ 1$, an $ R$-module $ B$ is called a Baer module if $ \operatorname{Ext} _R^1(B,T) = 0$ for all torsion $ R$-modules $ T$. The structure of Baer modules over arbitrary domains is investigated, and the problem is reduced to the case of countably generated Baer modules. This requires a general version of the singular compactness theorem. As an application we show that over $ h$-local Prüfer domains, Baer modules are necessarily projective. In addition, we establish an independence result for a weaker version of Baer modules.
