We mapped molecular gas toward the supernova remnant W44 in the HCO+ J = 1–0 line with the Nobeyama Radio Observatory 45 m telescope and in the CO J = 3–2 line with the Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment 10 m telescope. High-velocity emission wings were detected in both lines over the area where the radio shell of W44 overlaps with the molecular cloud in the plane of the sky. We found that the average velocity distributions of the wing emission can be fit by a uniform expansion model…
