Grants and Contracts Details


The nature of the HI fibers and their magnetic alignment is not well understood. The features are largely unresolved with the Arecibo resolution of 4’, or 0.12 pc at a distance of 100 pc. The requested VLA observations are necessary to understand the physical widths of the HI fibers. This measurement has implications for current theories of filament formation, as detailed in the proposal. The VLA findings would be published along with a discussion of our findings in light of current filament formation debates.
