Results of the ESO-SEST Key Programme: CO in the Magellanic Clouds. V. Further CO observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud.
We present further results of fully-sampled observations in the J=1->0 and J=2-> 1 rotational transitions of ^12^CO and ^13^CO, obtained with the SEST telescope at 43" or 22" resolution, toward the Small Magellanic Cloud. These observations concern six molecular clouds with a variety of physical conditions. Maps in the ^12^CO(1->0), ^12^CO(2-> 1), and in some cases of ^13^CO(1->0) lines are presented, as well as profiles of the four lines at the peak positions convolved to the same angular resolution of 43". The line ratio results are interpreted in Paper IV of this series (Lequeux et al. 1994).
