  • We are undertaking a large-scale radial velocity survey of the Galactic bulge that uses M giant stars selected from the Two Micron All Sky Survey catalog as targets for the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory 4 m Hydra multiobject spectrograph. The aim of this survey is to test dynamical models of the bulge and to quantify the importance, if any, of cold stellar streams in the bulge and its vicinity. Here we report on the kinematics of a strip of fields at -10° < l < +10° and b = -4°. We… CONTINUE READING
