MHO Catalogue

Recently I’ve been collaborating with Chris Davis on the catalogue of Molecular Hydrogen Emission-Line Objects (MHOs for short). This project is going forward quite well and recently Chris drafted an article announcing the catalogue which was submitted to A&A. The article is also available from astro-ph.

The catalogue itself has a home page where one could have a look at current numberings of many outflows detected in NIR. There is also a possibility to identify the objects by their pictures. People working in the are of star formation and outflows are encouraged to request the numbers for their new detected objects in NIR. More details can be obtained in the actual MHO home page.

Update December 19th 2009 – The paper has been accepted for the publications by Astronomy & Astrophysics

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
