Abstract (from CDS):

A high signal-to-noise 52-90µm spectrum is presented for the central part of the Sagittarius B2 complex. The data were obtained with the Long Wavelength Spectrometer on board the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO). The [O I] 63µm line is detected in absorption even at the grating spectral resolution of 0.29µm. A lower limit for the column density of atomic oxygen of the order of 1019cm–2 is derived. This implies that more than 40% of the interstellar oxygen must be in atomic form along the line of sight toward the Sgr B2 molecular cloud.
