Orion Paper Submitted

Recently I’ve become a silent participant to a huge collaboration intended to map all the molecular hydrogen outflows in Orion-A Molecular Ridge. The submitted paper is entitled: A census of molecular outflows and their sources along the Orion A molecular ridge Characteristics and overall distribution by Davis et al. It is a remarkable work combining data from several wave-bands NIR to MM. Here is the abstract: Continue reading Orion Paper Submitted

JCMT ACSIS Data

I’ve been trying to make presentable cubes for our observations of Wu Core done at JCMT with ACSIS. So far I’ve managed to produce nice, smooth cubes of data from HCN (3-2), HCO+(3-2) and C17O data (all the current dataset).

Here is the sequence to produce the final cubes using STARLINK packages SMURF, KAPPA: Continue reading JCMT ACSIS Data
