Catalogue

The Team Mopra catalogue of Molecular Clouds is being put together by our hard-working PhD student, Domenico, who has adapted the Clumpfind algorithm to work in our very large data cubes. All coordinates are Galactic, and we assume the clouds are located at the near distance. *For some clouds, their velocities are too great to be simply caused by Galactic rotation, and we list the distance as the tangent point (we assume the cloud is at the same Galactic radius (distance to the Galactic Centre) as the Sun, along the line of sight, and the additional velocity component is caused by internal motions).
