Molecular clouds in supershells: A case study of three objects in the walls of GSH 287+04-17 and GSH 277+00+36

Dawson, J.R.; McClure-Griffiths, Naomi; Dickey, John; Fukui, Y.


We present an in-depth case study of three molecular clouds associated with the walls of the Galactic supershells GSH 287+04–17 and GSH 277+00+36. These clouds have been identified in previous work as examples in which molecular gas is either being formed or destroyed due to the influence of the shells. 12CO(J=1–0), 13CO(J=1–0) and C18O(J=1–0) mapping observations with the Mopra telescope provide detailed information on the distribution and properties of the molecular gas, enabling an...[Show more]
