Extract

Gas and dust in the inner region of the Galaxy are distributed in a flat, disklike structure. We model the dynamics of this material in the framework of an accretion disk approach, and thus determine the efficiency of the radial transport of mass and angular momentum in the inner ∼ 200 pc of the Galactic Plane. Moreover, this allows us to establish the location (coordinates: galactic longitude l and depth normal to the celestial sphere) of molecular clouds from the observed positions (l) and radial velocities (currently, we neglect details of the vertical structure). Ultimately this will yield a map of the distribution of molecular clouds about Sgr A∗.
