Full description

The Radio Ammonia Mid-Plane Survey (RAMPS) is a Galactic plane molecular line survey in the 1st quadrant of the Milky Way. We perform RAMPS observations with the 100-meter Green Bank Telescope in Green Bank, West Virginia. The purpose of RAMPS is to provide a large sample of dense molecular clumps to help us better understand the formation of high-mass stars. RAMPS primarily targets the NH3(1,1)-(5,5) inversion transitions, which trace dense gas, and the H2O maser transition at 22.235 GHz, which traces sites of active star formation. RAMPS has completed its pilot survey, having mapped 6.5 degrees2 in fields centered at Galactic longitudes l = 10˚, 23˚, 24˚, 28˚, 29˚, 30˚, 31˚, 38˚, 45˚, and 47˚. The pilot data is comprised of 6 zip files, each representing a contiguous portion of the pilot survey.
