This paper reports on a high sensitivity $\lambda$ 21-cm neutral hydrogen survey of the sky south of $\delta\leq$ -25$^\circ$. A total of 50980 positions lying on a galactic coordinate grid with points spaced by ( $\bigtriangleup$l, $\bigtriangleup$b) = (0 $.\!\!^\circ$5/cos b, 0 $.\!\!^\circ$5), were observed with the 30 m dish of the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía (IAR). The angular resolution of the survey is HPBW = 30$^\prime$, and the velocity coverage spans the interval -450 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ to +400 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ (LSR). The velocity resolution is 1.27 $\rm\, km\, s^{-1}$ and the final rms noise of the entire database is $\sim$ 0.07 K. The brightness temperature scale is accurate to 5%.

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.
