The 500 central pc of the Galaxy (hereafter GC) exhibit a wide spr ad gas component with a kinetic temperature of 100-200 K. The bulk of this gas is not associated to the well -known thermal radio continuum or far infrared sources like Sgr A or Sgr B. How this gas is heated has been a longstanding pr oblem. With the aim of studying the thermal balance of the neutral gas and dust in the GC, we have observed 18 molecul ar clouds located at projected distances far from thermal continuum sources… CONTINUE READING
