Galactic Observations of Terahertz C+ (GOT Cplus) Overview
GOT_Cplus Overview GOT_Cplus Data Access


Herschel data from the "Galactic Observations of Terahertz C+" (GOT Cplus) Open Time Key Program (KPOT_wlanger_1) are available here using spatial and visualization tools. GOT Cplus surveyed the Galactic Plane in the 158 micron (1.9 THz) fine structure transition of [CII] using Herschel's HIFI instrument. GOT Cplus is a sparse survey containing 454 lines of sight throughout the Galactic Disk, plus two position-velocity maps across the Galactic center.

If you use GOT Cplus data, please cite the journal articles Pineda et al. (2013) for initial longitude-velocity maps at 3 Galactic latitudes, Langer et al. (2014) for fitting of [CII] and CO spectral data, and Langer et al. (2017) for OTF (on-the-fly) position-velocity maps of the Central Molecular Zone, as well as the dataset Digital Object Identifier (DOI): 10.26131/IRSA509.
