1997ApJS..112..245N Search and Redshift Survey for IRAS Galaxies behind the Milky Way and Structure of the Local Void KOUICHIRO NAKANISHI, TADAFUMI TAKATA, TORU YAMADA, TSUTOMU T. TAKEUCHI, RYUICHI SHIROYA, MORIO MIYAZAWA, SHIGEO WATANABE, AND MAMORU SAITO Received 1996 November 8; accepted 1997 April 7 ABSTRACT This is the third and final paper of our systematic visual search for IRAS galaxies behind the Milky Way at |b| <= 15^deg^. This paper presents a catalog of 950 IRAS galaxies with 60 micron flux densities larger than 0.6 Jy located between l = 0^deg^ and 150^deg^, of which 293 are newly identified by this search. We made a redshift survey for the identified galaxies and obtained new redshift data of 171 galaxies. We also present newly measured redshifts of 27 IRAS galaxies between l = 150^deg^ and 225^deg^ at |b| <= 15^deg^. In this paper we studied the structure of the Local void using IRAS galaxies and galaxies from the Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies in the region l = 30^deg^-120^deg^ and b = -50^deg^ to +30^deg^. The center of the Local void turned out to be located at l ~ 60^deg^, b ~ -15^deg^, and cz ~ 2500 km s^-1^, and the size is about 2500 km s^-1^ along the direction toward the center.
