Context. Methanol masers are often found in linear distributions, and it has been hypothesized that these masers are tracing circumstellar accretion disks around young massive stars. However, recent observations in H2 emission have shown what appear to be outflows at similar angles to the maser distribution angles, not perpendicular as expected in the(More)
The JCMT Legacy Survey (JLS) is an ambitious programme that will provide the first large-scale survey of the submillimetre sky. From planetary science through to cosmology, the first phase of the campaign will be using the continuum instrument SCUBA-2 and the imaging spectrometer HARP to obtain over 100 Terabytes of raw data. We present our ongoing work to(More)
This paper describes a James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) legacy survey that has been awarded roughly 500 hr of observing time to be carried out from 2007 to 2009. In this survey, we will map with SCUBA-2 (Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array 2) almost all of the well-known low-mass and intermediate-mass star-forming regions within 0.5 kpc that are(More)
We report on the discovery of the radio, infrared and optical transient coincident with an X-ray transient proposed to be the afterglow of GRB 980703. At later times when the transient has faded below detection, we see an underlying galaxy with R = 22.6; this galaxy is the brightest host galaxy (by nearly 2 magnitudes) of any cosmological GRB thus far. In(More)
The Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) standard has been a great boon to astronomy, allowing observatories, scientists and the public to exchange astronomical information easily. The FITS standard, however, is showing its age. Developed in the late 1970s, the FITS authors made a number of implementation choices that, while common at the time, are now(More)
This paper describes a new Heterodyne Array Receiver Programme (HARP) and Auto-Correlation Spectral Imaging System (ACSIS) that have recently been installed and commissioned on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). The 16-element focal-plane array receiver, operating in the submillimetre from 325 to 375 GHz, offers high (three-dimensional) mapping(More)
The G11.11-0.12 infrared-dark cloud has a filamentary appearance, both in extinction against the diffuse infrared emission of the Galactic plane and in emission at 850µm. We use a novel computational technique based on an advanced genetic algorithm to explore thoroughly 3 different models of self-gravitating, pressure truncated filaments and to constrain(More)
Millimeter and mid-infrared observations have been made of the dense clumps of dust and gas and of young stellar objects (YSOs) associated with the bright, compact submillimeter source G79.3+0.3 P1 in the relatively nearby MSX infrared-dark cloud G79.3+0.3. The Gemini mid-infrared observations reported here indicate the presence of three YSOs within the(More)
