The GBT H II Region Discovery Survey - Tom Bania Colloquium
We discovered hundreds of previously unknown Milky Way HII regions by using the Green Bank Telescope to detect their hydrogen radio recombination line emission. Since the interstellar medium is optically thin at 3 cm wavelength, we can detect HII regions across the entire Galactic disk. Our targets were selected based on spatially coincident mid-infrared and 20 cm radio continuum emission.
