Constraining the properties of 1.2-mm dust clumps that contain luminous water masers. Breen S.L., Ellingsen S.P. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 416, 178-204 (2011)> =2011MNRAS.416..178B
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; Radio lines ; Masers Keywords: masers - stars: formation - ISM: molecules - radio lines: ISM Abstract: We have conducted a sensitive water maser search with the Australia Telescope Compact Array towards 267 1.2-mm dust clumps presented in the literature. We combine our new observations with previous water maser observations to extend our sample to 294 1.2-mm dust clumps, towards which we detect 165 distinct water maser sites towards 128 1.2-mm dust clumps. Within the fields of our observations, we additionally find four water masers with no apparent associated 1.2-mm dust continuum emission. Our overall detection rate of 44 per cent appears to vary as a function of Galactic longitude. We find that there is an excellent correspondence between the locations of the detected water masers with the peak of the target 1.2-mm dust clump sources. As expected from previous similar studies, the water masers are chiefly detected towards the bigger, brighter and more massive 1.2-mm dust clumps. Description: The feasibility of this study was tested with observations using the University of Tasmania's 26-m Mount Pleasant radio telescope. All 404 1.2-mm dust clumps given in Hill et al. (2005, Cat. J/MNRAS/363/405) were targeted in these observations during 2007. File Summary:

Note (3): gives information about the ATCA array configuration used in the water maser observations followed by the epoch. H75 = 2007 October 9, 10, H214 = 2007 December 7, H214 = 2008 July 12, 13, 6B = 2008 August 15, 16, 17. In some cases, data are taken from Breen et al. (2010MNRAS.406.1487B), which are marked with a `BCEP' followed by the year of the observations. This format is also followed for sources taken from Caswell & Breen (2010MNRAS.407.2599C) (CB) and Forster & Caswell (1989A&A...213..339F) (FC). Note (4): Presents notes related to the sources, which in most cases are further discussed in Section 3.1. Note the following abbreviations: BS(RS) indicates that the source is dominated by a blueshifted (redshifted) feature.
