Heithausen et al. 1987

Heithausen, A., U. Mebold, and H.W. de Vries, 1987: A survey of formaldehyde in high galactic latitudes. Astron. Astrophys., 179, 263-267.

We report the discovery of formaldehyde H2CO in four out of 15 CO-clouds observed in high Galactic latitudes. For one of these we present a velocity-integrated formaldehyde map. The clouds are clearly connected to CO clouds described by de Vries et al. (1986), to Lynds bright and dark nebulae (Lynds, 1963), and to the galactic infrared cirrus (Low et al., 1984). The distribution of CO and H2CO clouds is compared. The depths of the l10-11H2CO lines show no correlation to the integrated J = l→012CO line intensities.
