The Australia Telescope Compact Array has recently completed an HI survey of the LMC at 1 arcmin resolution. The images were produced by mosaicing together spectra-line cubes from 1344 different pointing centres. Papers and images are available from this web site.



"A Neutral Hydrogen Survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud: Aperture Synthesis and Multibeam Data Combined" The combined ATCA+Parkes multibeam HI survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud (Kim, Staveley-Smith, Dopita, Sault, Freeman, Lee, Chu, 2003, ApJS, 148, 473).

"A new look at the large-scale HI structure of the Large Magellanic Cloud" Parkes multibeam HI survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud (Staveley-Smith, Kim, Calabretta, Haynes, Kesteven, 2003, MNRAS, 339, 87).

"A New Method to Measure and Map the Gas Scale-Height of Disk Galaxies" Spectral Correlation Function analysis of the LMC data. (Padoan, Kim, Goodman, Staveley-Smith, 2001, ApJ, 555, 33).

"A Fractal Analysis of the HI Emission from the Large Magellanic Cloud" Fourier transform power spectra of the distribution of neutral hydrogen emission in the Large Magellanic Cloud (Elmegreen, Kim, Staveley-Smith 2001, ApJ 548, 749).

"HI Shells in the Large Magellanic Cloud" An inventory of 23 candidate supergiant and 103 candidate giant HI shells in the LMC (Kim, Dopita, Staveley-Smith & Bessell 1999, AJ 118, 2797).

"An HI Aperture Synthesis Mosaic of the Large Magellanic Cloud" HI results from the ATCA mosaic of the LMC (Kim, Staveley-Smith, Dopita, Freeman, Sault, Kesteven & McConnell 1998, ApJ, 503, 674).

"The Multi-Phase Medium in the Interstellar Complex N44" HI results from the ATCA mosaic of the LMC (Kim, Chu, Staveley-Smith & Smith 1998, ApJ, 503, 729).

"An HI Mosaic of the Large Magellanic Cloud" HI in the Local Universe conference paper (Kim, Staveley-Smith, Sault, Kesteven, McConnell & Freeman 1997, PASA, 14, 119).
