Water masers in the Local Group of Galaxies

Brunthaler, A; Henkel, C; de Blok, Willem; Reid, M; Greenhill, Lincoln; Falcke, H

Description

We compare the number of detected 22 GHz H2O masers in the Local Group galaxies M 31, M 33, NGC6822, IC 10, IC 1613, DDO 187, GR8, NGC 185, and the Magellanic Clouds with the water maser population of the Milky Way. To accomplish this we searched for water maser emission in the two Local Group galaxies M 33 and NGC 6822 using the Very Large Array (VLA) and incorporated results from previous studies. We observed 62 HII regions in M 33 and 36 regions with Ha emission in NGC 6822. Detection limits...[Show more]
