HI observations of nearby galaxies. IV. More dwarf galaxies in the southern sky
In this paper we present HI observations of nearby galaxies from twomore lists of the Karachentsev catalog of candidates for nearby dwarfgalaxies in the southern sky. Observations north of declination -31degrwere performed with the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg. Data formore southern galaxies were taken from HIPASS(www.atnf.csiro.au/research/multibeam). This sample is a supplement tothe list of 94 southern dwarf galaxy candidates (1998, A&AS, 127,409) located in the same declination range around the known Local Volumegalaxies (i.e. galaxies within 10 Mpc, LV hereafter). We observed 17galaxies not observed in the previous sample; and all 67 candidate dwarfgalaxies from the SERC EJ sky survey (Karachentsev et al.\cite{Karachentsev00) and 81 objects from a supplementary list ofcandidate dwarf galaxies (Karachentseva & Karachentsev\cite{Karachentseva00}). This yields a total of 165 (=17 + 67 + 81)galaxies. Overall we have a detection rate of 48%. The sample ofdetected galaxies has the following median parameters: radial velocityVLG= 1127 km s-1, HI line width W50 =59 km s-1, absolute blue magnitude MBT0= -14.4 mag, linear diameter A0 = 4.0 kpc, hydrogenmass-to-luminosity ratio 1.6 Msun/Lsun. The sampleof known galaxies within the Local Volume increased from 179 in 1979(Kraan-Korteweg & Tammann \cite{KraanKorteweg79}) to 387 now. Thiscorresponds to an increase in total luminosity of 22%. The known HI massin the LV increased by 25%; the relative HI contentMHI/LB increased from 0.21 to 0.26 for the wholevolume. However we still might have missed half of the dwarf galaxies inthe Local Volume.

An Infrared Search for Extinguished Supernovae in Starburst Galaxies
IR and radio-band observations of heavily extinguished regions instarburst galaxies suggest a high supernova (SN) rate associated withsuch regions. Optically measured SN rates may therefore underestimatethe total SN rate by factors of up to 10, as a result of the very highextinction (A_B~10-20 mag) to core-collapse SNe in starburst regions.The IR/radio SN rates come from a variety of indirect means, however,which suffer from model dependence and other problems. We describe adirect measurement of the SN rate from a regular patrol of starburstgalaxies done with K'-band imaging to minimize the effects ofextinction. A collection of K'-band measurements of core-collapse SNenear maximum light is presented. Such measurements (excluding 1987A) arenot well reported in the literature. Results of a preliminary K'-bandsearch, using the MIRC camera at the Wyoming Infrared Observatory and animproved search strategy using the new ORCA optics, are described. Amonthly patrol of a sample of IRAS bright (mostly starburst) galaxieswithin 25 Mpc should yield 1-6 SNe yr^-1, corresponding to the range ofestimated SN rates. Our initial MIRC search with low resolution (2.2"pixels) failed to find extinguished SNe in the IRAS galaxies, limitingthe SN rate outside the nucleus (at greater than 15" radius) to lessthan 3.8 far-IR SN rate units (SNe per century per 10^10 L_solarmeasured at 60 and 100 mum, or FIRSRU) at 90% confidence. The MIRCcamera had insufficient resolution to search nuclear starburst regions,where starburst and SN activity is concentrated; therefore, we wereunable to rigorously test the hypothesis of high SN rates in heavilyobscured star-forming regions. We conclude that high-resolution nuclearSN searches in starburst galaxies with small fields are more productivethan low-resolution, large-field searches, even for our sample of large(often several arcminutes) galaxies. With our ORCA high-resolutionoptics, we could limit the total SN rate to less than 1.3 FIRSRU at 90%confidence in 3 years of observations, lower than most estimates.

Scaleheights of 486 southern spiral galaxies and some statistical correlation
Based on Peng's method (1988), we obtain scaleheights of 486 southernspiral galaxies, the images of which are taken from the Digitized SkySurvey at Xinglong Station of Beijing Astronomical Observatory. Thefitted spiral arms of 70 galaxies are compared with their images to gettheir optimum inclinations. The scaleheights of other 416 ones arelisted in Table A1 in Appendix. After compiling and analyzing the data,we find some statistical correlations. The most interesting results arethat a flatter galaxy is bluer and looks brighter, and galaxies becomeflatter along the Hubble sequence Sab -- Scd. Based on photographic dataof the National Geographic Society -- Palomar Observatory Sky Survey(NGS-POSS) obtained using the Oschin Telescope Palomar Mountain. TheNGS-POSS was funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society tothe California Institute of Technology. The plates were processed intothe present compressed digital form with their permission.

Search and redshift survey for IRAS galaxies behind the Northern Milky Way
We made a search for IRAS galaxies behind the Northern Milky Way byinfrared selection using IRAS Point Source Catalog and visual inspectionon POSS (Palomar Observatory Sky Survey) paper prints, and carried out aredshift survey of the identified objects. This paper presents a catalogof 649 IRAS galaxies with f_60_>=0.6 Jy between l=150deg and 240degat |b|<=15deg , which contains 254 newly identified galaxies and 188newly measured radial velocities. Due to galactic extinction, our sampleis a lower limit sample of the flux limited sample of IRAS galaxies, butit can give some information on the distribution of galaxies in theregion perpendicular to the Supergalactic Plane. We confirm two regionswith enhanced density at l=~160deg , cz=~5000 km/s and l=~190deg ,cz=~5000 km/s and at least two possible voids.

A search for IRAS galaxies behind the southern Milky Way
We systematically searched for IRAS galaxies with 60 micrometer fluxdensity larger than 0.6 Jy by using the UK Schmidt Infrared and IIIa-JAtlases in the Milky Way region (absolute value of b less than 15 deg)between l = 210 deg and 360 deg. We first selected about 4000 IRAS pointsources by using our far-infrared criteria, which are optimized for thesearch of IRAS galaxies behind the Milky Way region, and then inspectedvisually the optical counterparts of them on the Schmidt Atlas filmcopies. We found 966 IRAS sources associated with galaxy-like objects.The list of the objects is presented here with the IRAS source name,Galactic coordinates, IRAS flux densities, field number and emulsion ofthe Atlas, type and size of galaxy (-like) image, redshift,multiplicity, and cross-identification. Of these, 423 galaxies arealready cataloged in the Catalog of Galaxies and Quasars Observed in theIRAS Survey, and most of the remaining 543 galaxy candidates are newlyidentified in this search. Although the radial velocities are known foronly 387 galaxies, of which 60 were newly measured by us so far, weinferred the contamination by Galactic objects to be small from the goodcorrelation between the sky distributions of the newly identified galaxycandidates and the previously cataloged galaxies. In the regions wherethe Galactic molecular clouds dominate, almost all the sources were notidentified as galaxies. The detected galaxies are clustered in the threeregions around l = 240 deg, 280 deg, and 315 deg, where the projectednumber densities are higher than the whole-sky average of IRAS galaxiesof the same flux limit.

A search for galaxies behind the Milky Way between L = 210 deg and 230 deg
A report is presented on a systematic galaxy search at an anticenterregion behind the Milky Way between l = 209 deg and 234 deg at b = 0 degcovering about 500 sq deg. The search is carried out by means of a studyof 18 film copies of the UK Schmidt Southern Infrared Atlas of theaforementioned region which were made at an effective wavelength of 790nm with a 190 nm bandwidth. A total of 2411 galaxies were detected; ofthese, 30 have been given in catalogs of galaxies, and 81 are IRASgalaxies. A catalog of the detected galaxies is made with respect toposition, size, galaxy type, and cross identification. It is found thatthe number of galaxies detected per sq deg, Ngal, decreases withincreasing column density of hydrogen atoms in the Galaxy, N(H I), as afunction of the galactic latitude ranging from 1 to 9 x 10 to the 21/cmsq. For a size-limited survey of galaxies with diameters larger than0.45 arcmin the relation log(Ngal/1.4) = -N(H I)/1.1 x 10 to the 22 =-0.57AiN(H I), where Ai is the Galactic extinction coefficient. Threecandidates for clusters of galaxies are found around b = 5 deg with asize of 3 deg.
