Reference, Mass of MW

  1. Hi all,

    For my second year project at university, I have collected and analysed 21cm data of the Milky Way (MW). I have created a rotation curve, estimates of the mass and mapped the spiral arms in quadrant 1.

    I am having trouble finding a paper to compare my work to, I especially need one that states the mass of the MW within 8.5kpc (R<R0). I can find papers (Via NASA ADS) to reference for masses within 2.5kpc and within 100kpc or greater, but would like to know if there is one for ~8.5kpc.

    Does anyone know of one?

    Thanks

    Simon
