Abstract (from CDS):
We conducted a large-scale survey for the cold infrared sources along the northern Galactic plane in the CO (J=1-0) line. There are 1912 IRAS sources selected on the basis of their color indices over the 12, 25, and 60 µm wave bands and their association with regions of recent star formation. A quick single-point survey was made toward all of the sources, which results in a detection of 1331 sources with significant CO emission above the detection limit of 0.7 K, inferring a CO detection rate of 70%. Located over a wide range of the Galactocentric distances, the CO sources show high concentration toward the spiral arms. Among the detected sources, there are 351 sources found to have high-velocity CO wing emission. A search for the latest catalog of high-velocity CO flows (HVFs) from young stellar objects indicates that 289 sources are beyond the present lists of HVFs. These high-velocity wing sources provide us with a comprehensive database for the study of HVFs from young stellar objects. Using the known outflow sources as an effective indicator, we found that the detection rate for high-velocity wings during the quick survey is 62%, moderately sensitive in searching for new outflow sources. The CO detection rate of the IRAS sources, combined with the ratio of high-velocity wing, suggests that 41% of the CO sources are undergoing the HVF phase. In this paper, the CO spectra are presented along with the preliminary statistics of the data.
