OH in the Galactic Centre

  • P. J. Boyce (a1) and R. J. Cohen (a1)

Abstract

Preliminary results are reported from an OH mainline absorption study of the galactic centre. The molecular clouds form a well-defined structure 2 kpc in projected diameter, which is warped in its outer regions. The distribution of molecular clouds is highly organised. There are places where the line-widths are anomalously high. The possible nature of these broad-line clouds is briefly discussed.
