Hidden Star Formation in High-Velocity Gas Clouds in Clump 2 near the Edge of the CMZ

  • Volker Tolls (a1), Howard A. Smith (a1) and HIGGS Team (a1)

Abstract

We present a snapshot of our ongoing investigation of molecular clouds in Clump 2 located in the Galactic Bar region at a projected distance of ~400pc from the Galactic Center. We show that the analysis of the Clump 2 molecular clouds is complicated because of many fore- and background clouds in the line of sight. Of all clouds, IGGC 22 is the most interesting one, showing very high dust column densities, significant high-J CO emission, and, potentially harbors star formations as eluded to by the detection of [OIII] emission.
