Extended Data Fig. 7: Longitudinal profiles of the physical properties of the chimneys.

From: An X-ray chimney extending hundreds of parsecs above and below the Galactic Centre

Extended Data Fig. 7

From top to bottom, temperature, density and pressure profiles are shown as a function of longitude cutting through the northern and southern chimneys at latitudes b ≈ 0.7° and b ≈ −1.2° (see Extended Data Fig. 6). Positive values indicate Galactic west (‘west’ is ‘right’ as in an image in Galactic coordinates b and l). Black squares and red circles indicate the longitudinal cut through the northern and southern chimneys, respectively. The densities have been estimated assuming a volume V = (PA)3/2, where PA is the projected area. Vertical error bars represent 1σ uncertainties; horizontal error bars show the radial range of the extraction regions.
