Recombination Line Observations of Ionized Hydrogen

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 70)


Recombination line surveys of the large scale distribution of ionized hydrogen in the Galaxy indicate a concentration of material between 4 and 6 kpc from the galactic centre. This is very similar to the distribution derived for molecular hydrogen from CO observations but is unlike that found for atomic hydrogen.
