MALT90 - final data release

We are pleased to release the final instalment of data for the Millimetre Astronomy Legacy Team 90GHz (MALT90) survey.

MALT90 is a large survey aimed at characterizing high-mass dense clumps. Exploiting the unique broad frequency range and mapping capabilities of the Mopra 22-m telescope, MALT90 is the first systematic survey of several thousand dense clumps in the southern sky at this frequency. MALT90 is the largest database of molecular line emission toward high-mass star-forming clumps.

This final data release comprises all 2012 maps toward the dense clumps mapped during MALT90's four observing seasons (2010-2013). For each clump, the data release includes processed (l,b,v) cubes and (l,b) moment and error maps for all 16 of the emission lines observed.

The data are available through the Australia Telescope Online Archive (ATOA) :
