Title: Local nature of the anticenter anomalous-velocity streams and their focus

Abstract

We discuss the phenomenological aspects of a complex of associated HI features in the anticenter region of the Galaxy. We show that spatially extended streams comprised of high- and intermediate-velocity hydrogen clouds culminate in a focus of activity where there is a disruption and localized density minimum in the permitted-velocity material. We argue that the region of activity, and by association the forbidden-velocity material, are located within the Galaxy. This suggests constraints for the interpretation of at least the anticenter anomalous-velocity clouds.
