A Study of the 21-cm line in the solar neighborhood Venugopal, Virinchipuram R.


A survey of 21-cm line emission at points equally spaced over the entire sky visible from Penticton, British Columbia, has been made, and the profiles obtained at the intermediate galactic latitudes have been used to determine several of the properties of the distribution of the gas in the solar neighbourhood and to study the dynamics of the gas including the determination of solar motion with respect to gas, the distribution of random velocities and the departure of gas velocities from circular motion.
