Extract

We have carried out a survey of the 115 GHz CO emission (J = 1→0 transition) towards the Carina nebula (NGC 3372) using the Epping 4 m radio telescope of the CSIRO Division of Radiophysics. Of all the molecules detected in the interstellar medium CO is perhaps the best tracer of molecular clouds. It is an abundant molecule (second only to H2) and its line emission at microwave frequencies occurs at relatively low excitation.
