Galactic Observations of Terahertz C+ (GOT C+): [CII] Detection of Warm “Dark Gas” in the ISM
JPL-Caltech, MS 183-601, 4800 Oak Grove
The Herschel HIFI Key Program, Galactic Observations of Terahertz C+ (GOT C+) is a survey of [CII] 1.9 THz emission throughout the Galaxy. Comparison of the first results of this survey with HI and CO isotopomer emission reveals excess [CII] emission beyond that expected from HI and CO layers alone, and is best explained as coming from a hidden layer of H2 gas, the so-called ISM “dark gas”.
