The Magellanic Stream is a 100° × 10° filament of gas that lies within the Galactic halo and contains ~2 × 108 M☉ of neutral hydrogen. In this paper we present data from the H I Parkes All Sky Survey (HIPASS) in the first complete survey of the entire Magellanic Stream and its surroundings. We also present a summary of the reprocessing techniques used to recover large-scale structure in the Stream. The substantial improvement in spatial resolution and angular coverage compared to previous… 

The Many Streams of the Magellanic Stream

We present results from neutral hydrogen (H I) observations of the tip of the Magellanic Stream (MS), obtained with the Arecibo telescope as a part of the ongoing survey by the consortium for

HIGH-RESOLUTION OBSERVATIONS OF THE MAGELLANIC STREAM

The Magellanic Stream consists of a stream of gas stretching from the Magellanic Clouds, which extends well into the northern hemisphere. Except for small regions, existing observations of neutral

The Magellanic Stream: Circumnavigating the Galaxy

The Magellanic Clouds are surrounded by an extended network of gaseous structures. Chief among these is the Magellanic Stream, an interwoven tail of filaments trailing the Clouds in their orbit

Models of Tidally Induced Gas Filaments in the Magellanic Stream

The Magellanic Stream and Leading Arm of H i that stretches from the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC) and over 200° of the Southern sky is thought to be formed from multiple encounters

THE MAGELLANIC STREAM SYSTEM. I. RAM-PRESSURE TAILS AND THE RELICS OF THE COLLISION BETWEEN THE MAGELLANIC CLOUDS

We have analyzed the Magellanic Stream (MS) using the deepest and the most resolved H i survey of the Southern Hemisphere (the Galactic All-Sky Survey). The overall Stream is structured into two

THE MAGELLANIC STREAM AND DEBRIS CLOUDS

We present a study of the discrete clouds and filaments in the Magellanic Stream using a new high-resolution survey of neutral hydrogen (H i) conducted with the H75 array of the Australia Telescope

The Origin of the Magellanic Stream and Its Leading Arm

We explore the Magellanic Stream (MS) using a Gaussian decomposition of the H I velocity profiles in the Leiden-Argentine-Bonn (LAB) all-sky H I survey. This decomposition reveals the MS to be

The Magellanic System: the puzzle of the leading gas stream

The Magellanic Clouds (MCs) are the most massive gas-bearing systems falling into the Galaxy at the present epoch. They show clear signs of interaction, manifested in particular by the Magellanic

PROBING THE STRUCTURE AND KINEMATICS OF THE TRANSITION LAYER BETWEEN THE MAGELLANIC STREAM AND THE HALO IN H i

The Magellanic Stream (MS) is a nearby laboratory for studying the fate of cool gas streams injected into a gaseous galactic halo. We investigate properties of the boundary layer between the cool MS

Kinematics of the Magellanic Stream and Implications for Its Ionization

The Magellanic Stream and the Leading Arm form a massive, filamentary system of gas clouds surrounding the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. Here we present a new component-level analysis of their

The origin of the Magellanic Stream

SHORTENED ABSTRACT: We present numerical investigations designed to critically test models of the origin of the Magellanic Stream. The most developed model is the tidal model which fails to reproduce

N-body Simulations of the Small Magellanic Cloud and the Magellanic Stream

An extensive set of N-body simulations has been carried out on the gravitational interaction of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with the Galaxy and the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The SMC is

The Magellanic Stream. II

New high-sensitivity observations of the Magellanic Stream have been carried out from the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomia. The Stream was surveyed between dec. -44 deg and -20 deg. The data

The properties of the Magellanic Stream constrain the density of coronal gas in the distant Galactic halo by requiring the survival of the cloud MS IV for 500 Myr sets an upper limit on the halo gas density of nh<10-5 cm -3 at 50 kpc.

Are there really intergalactic hydrogen clouds in the Sculptor group

High-sensitivity 21 cm observations of the region of the Sculptor group of galaxies reveal at least 30 H I clouds distributed over only the southern sector of the group. These new data add two

The Fornax-Leo-Sculptor stream revisited

Lynden-Bell first demonstrated that the satellites of the Milky Way appear situated along two great 'streams' in the sky: the 'Magellanic stream' and the 'Fornax-Leo-Sculptor (FLS) stream.' Further

Metal Abundances in the Magellanic Stream

We report on the first metallicity determination for gas in the Magellanic Stream, using archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST) GHRS data for the background targets Fairall 9, III Zw 2, and NGC 7469.

High-Velocity Clouds: Building Blocks of the Local Group

We suggest that the high-velocity clouds (HVCs) are large clouds, with typical diameters of 25 kpc, containing 3×107 M☉ of neutral gas and 3×108 M☉ of dark matter, falling onto the Local Group;

Tidal disruption of the Magellanic Clouds by the Milky Way

Interactions between galaxies are common, and influence physical properties such as the global morphology and star-formation rate (Hubble type). Galaxies can interact in many different ways: they can

The large‐scale HI structure of the Small Magellanic Cloud

We combine new Parkes telescope observations of neutral hydrogen (Hi) in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with an Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) aperture synthesis mosaic to obtain a set of
