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… Expand
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 forExpand
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 neutralExpand
The many streams of the Magellanic Stream
Abstract As a part of the ongoing H i survey by the consortium for Galactic studies with the Arecibo L-band Feed Array (GALFA-HI), we have recently imaged the tip of the MS and found several longExpand
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 orbitExpand
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 twoExpand
Models of Tidally Induced Gas Filaments in the Magellanic Stream
The Magellanic Stream and Leading Arm of HI that stretches from the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC) and over 200 degrees of the Southern sky is thought to be formed from multipleExpand
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 TelescopeExpand
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 MSExpand
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 MagellanicExpand
The scattered debris of the Magellanic Stream
Searching the H i Parkes All-Sky Survey and its northern extension, we detected a population of very compact high-velocity clouds (HVCs) with similar velocities in the Galactic standard-of-rest frameExpand

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 reproduceExpand

TLDR
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. Expand
Are there really intergalactic hydrogen clouds in the Sculptor 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;Expand
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 canExpand
