Molecular Clouds in the Small Magellanic Cloud

  • Monica Rubio (a1)

Abstract

Molecular clouds in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) show characteristics different to those of Galactic molecular clouds. They have weak CO emission and low CO luminosities. Preliminary results of high resolution observations of SMC molecular clouds with the SEST telescope are presented.

In the SMC, the factor to convert the velocity integrated CO emission into molecular hydrogen column density appears to be different than the factor derived in our Galaxy, and in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
