1987ApJ...312..574L Molecular gas in the starburst nucleus of M82 K. Y. Lo, K. W. Cheung, C. R. Masson, T. G. Phillips, S. L. Scott, and D. P. Woody Abstract. High-resolution interferometric observations of the CO(1-0) emission from the central one arcmin region of the peculiar galaxy M82 are presented. The observations show that the molecular gas can be divided into two components: a high concentration in the central 700 pc x 200 pc and extended regions that may be shell-like and filamentary in structure. The properties of the interstellar medium in the nuclear region of M82 implied by these and other observations are discussed, and the implications of the observations for star formation in M82 and other galaxies are considered.
