γ-rays and the far-infrared-radio continuum correlation reveal a powerful Galactic Centre wind

Crocker, Roland; Jones, David I; Aharonian, F; Law, C J; Melia, Fulvio; Ott, Juergen


We consider the thermal and non-thermal emission from the inner 200 pc of the Galaxy. The radiation from this almost starburst-like region is ultimately driven dominantly by ongoing massive star formation. We show that this region's radio continuum (RC) emission is in relative deficit with respect to the expectation afforded by the far-infrared-radio continuum correlation (FRC). Likewise we show that the region's γ -ray emission falls short of that expected given its star formation and...[Show more]
