Study of small-scale HI structure in the Small Magellanic Cloud

We produced images of high column density HI emission in the Small Magellanic Cloud. At much higher spatial resolution than previously available, these are now comparable to that of far-infrared dust maps, enabling us to probe the neutral (and molecular) hydrogen on similarly small scales (~10 pc). Absorption line studies were also used to probe scales of as little as 800 au.
