The W 49 region

  • T. L. Wilson
Part VI: Selected Galactic H II Regions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 42)


The radio source W 49 consists of: (1) an H II region, W 49A, at galactic longitude ℓ =43.2° and galactic latitude b = 0.00, and(2) a supernova remnant W 49B, at ℓ =43.3°, b =-0.2°. Mezger, Schraml and Terzian (1967) have summarized the observations of these sources made before 1967. This review emphasizes data taken since that time.
