WISDOM Project – XV. Giant molecular clouds in the central region of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 5806

Abstract:

We present high spatial resolution (≈24 pc) Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array 12CO(2-1) observations of the central region of the nearby barred spiral galaxy NGC 5806. NGC 5806 has a highly structured molecular gas distribution with a clear nucleus, a nuclear ring, and offset dust lanes. We identify 170 spatially and spectrally resolved giant molecular clouds (GMCs). These clouds have comparable sizes (Rc) and larger gas masses, ob...
