(PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey)
(survey of GMCs in M51a)

PAWS (the PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey) is a Plateau de Bure Interferometer (PdBI) study of carbon monoxide(1-0) spectral lines in Whirlpool Galaxy, a grand-design spiral galaxy that is convenient for such study. The survey's arcsecond angular resolution allows resolution of clouds down to a few tens of parsecs, small enough to identify giant molecular clouds.
