The HI distribution observed toward a halo region of the MilkyWay

López, E., Armijos, Jairo, Llerena, Mario and Aldas, Franklin 2017. The HI distribution observed toward a halo region of the MilkyWay. Galaxies 5 (3) 10.3390/galaxies5030045

We use observations of the neutral atomic hydrogen (HI) 21-cm emission line to study the spatial distribution of the HI gas in a 80°×90° region of the Galaxy halo. The HI column densities in the range of 3–11 × 1020 cm−2 have been estimated for some of the studied regions. In our map—obtained with a spectral sensitivity of ∼2 K—we do not detect any HI 21-cm emission line above 2σ at Galactic latitudes higher than ∼46°. This report summarizes our contribution presented at the conference on the origin and evolution of barionic Galaxy halos.
