AN UPDATE ON THE MOPRA SOUTHERN GALACTIC PLANE CO SURVEY

Author: Michael Burton
The 22 m diameter Mopra telescope in Australia is being used to undertake an improved survey of the CO J = 1{0 line at 3mm along the 4th quadrant of the Galaxy, achieving an order of magnitude better spatial and spectral resolut ... more

Meridional Circulation and Global Solar Oscillations

Author: Markus Roth
We investigate the influence of large-scale meridional circulation on solar p-modes by quasi-degenerate perturbation theory, as proposed by Lavely and Ritzwoller (1992). As an input flow we use various models of stationary meridio ... more

Observational evidence for variations of the acoustic cutoff frequency with height in the solar atmosphere

Author: Aneta Wisniewska
Direct evidence for the existence of an acoustic cuto frequency in the solar atmosphere is given by observations performed by using the HELioseismological Large Regions Interferometric DEvice operating on the Vacuum Tower Teles ... more

VARIATION OF ACOUSTIC CUTOFF PERIOD WITH HEIGHT IN THE SOLAR ATMOSPHERE: THEORY VERSUS OBSRVETIONS

Author: Aneta Wisniewska
Recently Wiśniewska et al. demonstrated observationally how the acoustic cutoff frequency varies with height in the solar atmosphere including the upper photosphere and the lower and middle chromosphere, and showed that the obser ... more

The Carina Nebula and Gum 31 molecular complex: I. Molecular gas distribution, column densities and dust temperatures

Author: Michael Burton
We report high resolution observations of the 12CO(1 → 0) and 13CO(1 → 0) molecular lines in the Carina Nebula and the Gum 31 region obtained with the 22-m Mopra telescope as part of the The Mopra Southern Galactic Plane CO Su ... more

EXTENDED CARBON LINE EMISSION IN THE GALAXY: SEARCHING FOR DARK MOLECULAR GAS ALONG THE G328 SIGHTLINE

Author: Michael Burton
We present spectral data cubes of the [CI] 809 GHz, 12CO 115 GHz, 13CO 110 GHz, and HI 1.4 GHz line emission from a ∼1 square degree region along the l = 328 (G328) sightline in the Galactic Plane. Emission arises principally ... more

LORD OF THE RINGS: A KINEMATIC DISTANCE TO CIRCINUS X-1 FROM A GIANT X-RAY LIGHT ECHO

Author: Michael Burton
Circinus X-1 exhibited a bright X-ray flare in late 2013. Follow-up observations with Chandra and XMM-Newton from 40 to 80 days after the flare reveal a bright X-ray light echo in the form of four well-defined rings with radii fro ... more
