25 GHz methanol masers in regions of massive star formation
International Astronomical Union Symposium (287th : 2012) (29 January - 3 February 2012 : Stellenbosch, South Africa)
Booth, Roy S.; Humphreys, Elizabeth M. L. and Vlemmings, Wouter H. T.. Cosmic masers : from OH to H₀ : proceedings of the 287th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, January 29 - February 3, 2012, p.282-283
The bright 25 GHz series of methanol masers is formed in highly energetic regions of massive star formation and provides a natural signpost of shocked gas surrounding newly forming stars. A systematic survey for the 25 GHz masers has only recently been carried out. We present the preliminary results from the interferometric follow up of 51 masers at 25 GHz in the southern sky.
