By Robert L. Brown (auth.), Gerrit L. Verschuur, Kenneth I. Kellermann (eds.)

The current set of chapters by means of participants of the workers of the nationwide Radio Astronomy Observatory bargains with the elemental fields of study fascinated about radio astronomy open air the sunlight procedure. The emphasis during this quantity is at the form of facts on hand and its interpretation. simple thought is taken into account in basic terms the place totally priceless, and little dialogue of receivers or concepts is entered into in lots of the chapters. The booklet is meant to take over the place so much textbooks on radio astronomy go away off, that's, within the dialogue of what's really identified from the study performed. additionally there's a bankruptcy at the technical features of inter­ ferometry and aperture synthesis, given that rather a lot of recent radio astronomy relies, and may count in an ever expanding demeanour, on such instruments. The editors are looking to rigidity that the chapters weren't inevitably anticipated to be compre­ hensive stories of any of the fields being coated, yet relatively, total outlines which the in­ dividual authors feIt will be compatible for graduate scholars and employees in different fields. for that reason, the lists of references will not be whole. This in simple terms refiects the personal tastes of the person authors and never the relative advantage of these references incIuded or omitted.

6 HI and Other Interstellar Atoms The presence of several heavy atoms in interstellar space has been known for decades because of the absorption lines they produce 38 Galactic and Extra-Galactic Radio Astronomy in the light from distant stars. The distribution of interstellar calcium and sodium has been studied in this way. The velocities of the CaII ,or Na D lines can be compared with the 21-cm emission spectra velocities in the same direction to determine whether the same c10uds contain both the HI and heavier atoms.
