Radio Emission from the Vela?Puppis Region
Australian Journal of Physics
11(4) 550 - 563
AbstractThe Vela-Puppis region has been surveyed with Mills Cross radio telescopes, and radio isophotes plotted at two wavelengths. Many discrete sources have been observed. Several H II regions have been detected in emission at 3·5 m and in absorption at 15·2 m; the radiation from such objects is of thermal origin. The outstanding feature of this region is a group of strong non-thermal sources near the galactic equator. These are superimposed on an intense belt of radiation along the equator, and this, too, is certainly non-thermal in origin. Some correlation with galactic structure is suggested.
