The JCMT Nearby Galaxies Legacy Survey - VIII. CO data and the L CO(3-2)-L FIR correlation in the SINGS sample

Abstract:

The James Clerk Maxwell Telescope Nearby Galaxies Legacy Survey (NGLS) comprises an Hi-selected sample of 155 galaxies spanning all morphological types with distances less than 25Mpc. We describe the scientific goals of the survey, the sample selection and the observing strategy. We also present an atlas and analysis of the CO J=3 - 2 maps for the 47 galaxies in the NGLS which are also part of the Spitzer Infrared Nearby Galaxies Survey. We find a wide range of molecular gas mass fractions in...
