The Coalsack near and far. Beuther H., Kainulainen J., Henning T., Plume R., Heitsch F. <Astron. Astrophys. 533, A17 (2011)> =2011A&A...533A..17B
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; Radio lines Keywords: stars: formation - ISM: individual: Coalsack - ISM: clouds - ISM: kinematics and dynamics - ISM: structure Abstract: The large Coalsack dark cloud is one of the most prominent southern starless clouds, which is even visible to the naked eye. Furthermore, it is one of the rare molecular clouds without clear signs of star formation. We investigate the dynamical properties of the gas within the Coalsack. The two highest extinction regions were mapped with the APEX telescope in 13CO(2-1) comprising a region of ∼1 square degree. Description: The C18O(2-1) and 13CO(2-1) data at 219.560GHz and 220.399GHz were observed simultaneously with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) between April and June 2010 in the 1mm band for the two regions R1 and R2 marked in Fig. 1 in on-the-fly mode.
