PAWS

(PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey)
(survey of GMCs in M51a)

PAWS (the PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey) is a Plateau de Bure Interferometer (PdBI) study of Carbon Monoxide (CO)(1-0) Spectral Lines in Whirlpool Galaxy (M51a), a grand-design Spiral Galaxy. Its arcsecond Angular Resolution allows resolution of clouds down to a few tens of Parsecs (pc), small enough to identify Giant Molecular Clouds (GMC).
