We present the results of a radio continuum survey at 21 cm wavelength of the Galactic plane between 95tex2html_wrap562 5 tex2html_wrap_inline532 240tex2html_wrap564 and tex2html_wrap_inline536 with the Effelsberg 100-m telescope. The data have been absolutely calibrated by using the Stockert northern sky survey at the same wavelength. This survey complements the Effelsberg 21 cm Galactic plane survey for l tex2html_wrap_inline538 95tex2html_wrap562 5 by Reich et al. (1990a). The results are presented as contour maps with a sensitivity of 100 mK TB at an angular resolution (HPBW) of 9tex2html_wrap576 4. In addition we extend the list of compact sources given by Reich et al. (1990a) by 1830 new entries. These sources have peak flux densities exceeding 160 mK TB (or 79 mJy/beam area) and apparent sizes of less than 16tex2html_wrap578.

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
