EMPIRE Survey

(EMIR Multi-line Probe of the ISM Regulating Galaxy Evolution)
(survey of gas in M51a to follow up PAWS)

The EMPIRE Survey (EMIR Multi-line Probe of the ISM Regulating Galaxy Evolution) is a survey of gas spectral lines in Whirlpool Galaxy, a grand design spiral galaxy. It uses the EMIR instrument on the Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC). Whereas PAWS mapped the carbon monoxide(1-0) line, this survey maps molecular lines in the 3-mm atmospheric window, specifically, HCN, HCO+, and HNC lines within that window. I gather the angular resolution is about half an arcmin.
