Abstract / Description:We present the results of an investigation of
the large-scale structure of the diffuse
interstellar medium in the 2nd Galactic Quadrant
(90‚‚deg;‚‚le;l‚‚le;180‚‚deg;). 145 loops were
identified on IRAS-based far-infrared maps. Our
catalogue lists their basic physical properties.
The distribution clearly suggests that there is
an efficient process that can generate loop-like
features at high Galactic latitudes. Distances
are provided for 30 loops. We also give an
observational estimate of the volume filling
factor of the hot gas in the Local Arm,
4.6%‚‚le;f2nd‚‚lt;6.4%.
