Diffuse neutral hydrogen in the H I Parkes All Sky Survey. Popping A., Braun R. <Astron. Astrophys., 533, A122 (2011)> =2011A&A...533A.122P
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; H I data ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: formation - galaxies: halos - intergalactic medium Abstract: Observations of neutral hydrogen can provide a wealth of information about the distribution and kinematics of galaxies. To learn more about large scale structures and accretion processes, the extended environment of galaxies must also be observed. Numerical simulations predict a cosmic web of extended structures and gaseous filaments. To detect HI beyond the ionisation edge of galaxy disks, column density sensitivities have to be achieved that probe the regime of Lyman limit systems. Typically HI observations are limited to a brightness sensitivity of NHI∼1019cm-2 but this has to be improved by at least an order of magnitude. Description: In this paper, reprocessed data is presented that was originally observed for the HI Parkes All Sky Survey (HIPASS). The data is described in detail in Barnes et al. (2001MNRAS.322..486B). HIPASS provides complete coverage of the region that has been observed for the Westerbork Virgo Filament HI Survey (WVFS), presented in accompanying papers, and thus is an excellent product for data comparison. The region of interest extends from 8 to 17 hours in right ascension and from -1 to 10 degrees in declination. Although the original HIPASS product already has good flux sensitivity, the sensitivity and noise characteristics can be significantly improved with a different processing method. File Summary:

Note (1): HIR is an abbreviation of HIPASS Reprocessed. Note (2): Completely new HI detections are indicated by "new". In the case a detection is not mentioned in the HIPASS catalogue however is detected by ALFALFA, this is indicated with "ALFALFA". Note (3): u = The flux and line-width values are underestimated as the object is at the edge of the processed bandwidth.
