Description
A survey of interstellar NaI D1 and D2 absorption features in the spectra of 104 early-type stars in the second and third Galactic quadrants reveals the large-scale kinematics of the interstellar gas within the Galactic anticenter hemisphere at distances from the Sun between ~70 and ~250pc. Employing a technique that uses both the radial velocities and column densities of the NaI absorptions produced by the intervening gas we have identified the velocity vectors and determined the spatial distribution of eight interstellar clouds in the volume explored.
