Details on Acronym: GPB GPB (Galactic Plane B survey) (Not yet in Simbad)Write:<<GPB GLLL.ll+B.bb>>
N: about 600
Object:? (SIMBAD class: Unknown = Object of unknown nature)
Note:In preparation. Galactic Plane B survey: l = -15deg to 255deg, b = -5deg to +5deg. Second images of galactic sources, HII regions, SNRs and transients. See also GPA.
Notes:We present the second images of the galactic plane (|b| < 5deg, l = -15 deg to 255 deg) at 8.35 and 14.35 GHz. These observations used the NRAO/NASA Green Bank Earth Station to survey the sky simultaneously at these frequencies. These are the second results from the Galactic Plane (GP) survey observations, a program to monitor the sky at 8.35 and 14.35 GHz. The GP survey series is intended to detect short lived radio-sources.
