Abstract (from CDS):

We present matched-resolution VLA Hi and SCUBA 850-µm maps of 20 IRAS-bright galaxies. Of the galaxies observed, two were not detected in Hi and two were detected in absorption. The Hi distributions of the galaxies have a range of morphologies. Some of the systems appear Hi deficient in the central regions which could be due to a high conversion rate of Hi into molecules or Hi absorption. In contrast to the Hi, the 850-µm emission has a smooth distribution which is concentrated towards the optical centre of each galaxy. We also find evidence for 850-µm emission extending to the periphery of the optical disc in some of the galaxies. Finally, we note that the relative lack of 850-µm emission when compared with Hi does not necessarily mean that the atomic gas and dust do not have similar mass distributions.
