Arnaud et al. 1982

Arnaud, K., L.T. Pei, P.A. Riley, A.W. Wolfendale, T.M. Dame, J.E. Brock, and P. Thaddeus, 1982: The interrelation of cosmic γ-rays and interstellar gas in the range l:65-180°. Mon. Not. Roy. Astron. Soc., 201, 745-758.

New date on the distribution of molecular hydrogen in the first and second quadrants allow a detailed analysis of the relationship between the column density of gas (in all major forms) and the intensity of cosmic γ-rays in the Galaxy.

It is concluded that most of the features observed in the gamma-ray map can be explained in terms of cosmic-ray interactions with the gas in the ISM, with molecular hydrogen playing an important role. The cosmic-ray intensity in the important production regions appears to be roughly independent of galactocentric distance, R, for l:65-100°d to fall off slowly with R for l:100-180°.
