The Effect of the Large Scale Structure of the Galaxy on Star Formation Properties

T.J.T. Moore

 

The Galactic plane at l=30 contains the tangent of the Scutum-Centaurus Arm and the near end of the Long Bar of the Galaxy. The Sagittarius Arm also runs across the field. We make use of the BOLOCAM Galactic Plane Survey and the Galactic Ring Survey to find the fraction of total gas mass in dense, 1.1 mm continuum traced structures and to see how this fraction varies over this field; in relation to the proximity of large-scale structures and the local environment.
