J/AZh/84/579        Catalog of Class I methanol masers          (Val'tts+, 2007)

A general catalog of Class I methanol masers. Val'tts I.E., Larionov G.M. <Astron. Zh. 84, 579 (2007)> =2007AZh....84..579V =2007ARep...51..519V
ADC_Keywords: Masers ; Radial velocities Abstract: A catalog of class I methanol masers discovered so far in the Southern and Northern hemispheres is presented. The catalog contains 160 sources. A statistical analysis shows that, within 2' of the telescope pointing (which corresponds approximately to the field of view of single antennas used in search surveys), 50% of class I methanol masers are associated with objects characteristic of active starforming regions: IRAS sources, ultracompact HII regions, and dense gas dust clouds, as well as OH and H2O interstellar masers. At the same time, bipolar out flows (which could play an active part in pumping the methanol masers) are associated with fewer than 25% of class I methanol masers. In 72% of cases, class I methanol masers are associated with class II methanol maser sources. These results suggest that methanol maser condensations are more appropriately classified by the transition type (that is, the pumping mechanism) than their association with other astronomical objects.

Note (1): * if a class II maser is observed in that direction Note (2): * if the coordinates calculated ±30" from the IRAS position for the declination differ from the coordinates of the methanol maser by more than the beam size of the telescope on which the maser was discovered (±1') Note (3): Flag for available information on the source: y = available data n = absence of a particular source, confirmed spectroscopically | = lack of information (y) = source identified with a methanol maser, but its coordinates differ by slightly more than the ±2' limits.
