High-Resolution NH3 Gas Temperatures in the Galactic Center Cloud M0.10-0.08

We present high resolution (~3", 0.1 pc) rotational and kinetic gas temperature measurements of the Galactic center cloud M0.10-0.08. The M0.10-0.08 cloud is a compact (~100", 3 pc) cloud located ~25 pc in projection of the supermassive black-hole SrgA*. We derive gas temperatures throughout the cloud using multiple metastable transitions of NH3 taken with the Very Large Array (VLA). We used two methods to calculate the gas temperatures: a temperature map and a Boltzmann plot distribution. We compare our high resolution temperature values with other surveys.
