J/A+A/229/362      Small-scale structures in HI hole of M33        (Deul+, 1990)

Small-scale structures in the HI distribution of M 33. Deul E.R., den Hartog R.H. <Astron. Astrophys. 229, 362 (1990)> =1990A&A...229..362D
ADC_Keywords: Interstellar medium ; H I data ; Morphology Keywords: galaxies: general - galaxies: structure of - interstellar medium: bubbles - interstellar medium: general - radio lines: 21-cm Abstract: Recent high-resolution HI observations of M33 reveal a large number of regions that are devoid of emission. We interpret these regions as holes formed by interstellar winds; a catalogue containing 148 of these HI holes has been compiled. Their diameters range from the survey resolution limit (>40pc) to 1kpc. The swept-up mass, estimated from surrounding HI densities, ranges from 103M to 107M. Energies needed to excavate such holes are between 1049 to 1054erg. Indicative ages, based on derived expansion velocities and diameters, show a cutoff near 7x106yr. Three statistical analysis techniques are applied to determine positional correlation of the H I holes with H II regions, OB associations, and supernova remnants. File Summary:
