Some Characteristics of Interstellar Gas in the Galaxy

  • Harold F. Weaver (a1)

Extract

The task assigned for this review is to discuss structural features of the Galaxy as they may involve or relate to gas dynamics. Since a topic of such great breadth would permit discussion of essentially any aspect of the Galaxy, we shall narrow the view and direct attention primarily towards the larger-scale features of the system. In particular, effort will be made to place emphasis on those areas of the subject in which problems of interpretation exist and in which new theoretical models are needed.
