J/A+A/386/140       HI survey of polar ring galaxies. IV.     (van Driel+, 2002)

A neutral hydrogen survey of polar ring galaxies. IV. Parkes observations van Driel W., Combes F., Arnaboldi M., Sparke S. <Astron. Astrophys. 386, 140 (2002)> =2002A&A...386..140V
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, ring ; H I data ; Radio lines ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: general - galaxies: ISM - radio lines: galaxies Abstract: A total of 33 polar ring galaxies and polar ring galaxy candidates were observed in the 21-cm HI line with the 64-m Parkes radio telescope. The objects, selected by their optical morphology, are all south of declination -39° and in only 5 of them had been reported previously. HI line emission was detected towards 18 objects, though in 3 cases the detection may be confused by another galaxy in the telescope beam, and one is a marginal detection. Eight objects were detected for the first time in HI, of which 5 did not have previously known redshifts. File Summary:
