An Unbiased Survey for Molecular Clouds in the Southern Galactic Warp

Abstract

We have made an unbiased survey for molecular clouds in the Galactic Warp. This survey, covering an area of 56 square degrees at l = 252 to 266 and b = −5 to −1, has revealed 70 molecular clouds, while only 6 clouds were previously known in the region. The number of molecular clouds is, then, an order of magnitude greater than previously known in this… (More)
