Deep Effelsberg H spectra of the one-armed, bright Virgo cluster spiral galaxy NGC 4254 are presented. Five dif- ferent positions were observed in the 21 cm H line with the Effelsberg 100-m telescope: one in the center and 4 located one HPBW to the NE, NW, SW, and SE, respectively, from the galaxy center. The spectra are compared to existing deep VLA ob- servations, and the single dish and interferometric H data are used to constrain a dynamical model which includes the effects of ram… Expand
