Figure 1: The observed spectra of the clouds in the main beam brightness temperature scale. The higher transitions CO spectra are convolved to the CO(1-0) beam size of and the CS (3-2) spectra are scaled by 0.7 to "mimic'' the beam response of the CS (2-1) line. | |

Figure 2: RADEX solutions for SMC-B1#1 ( left) and Lirs 36 ( right). The upper panels show the contours on a logarithmic scale in steps of 0.2 (SMC-B1#1) and 0.1 (Lirs 36). The last contour is 0.7 ( = 5) for SMC-B1#1 and 1.3 ( = 20; twice the minimum value) for Lirs 36. The middle panels show CO column density contours in steps of 0.1. The leftmost contours correspond to the smaller values. The lower panel gives the contours of the surface filling factor in % where contour levels increase from the upper right corner. The dashed contours are in a step of 1, while the full lines are with a step of 10; the ranges are indicated above the panels. In the two lower panels the contours restricting the range of solutions are overlayed. These solutions are for and cm^{-3} (SMC-B1#1), and [^{12}CO/^{13}CO] = 100 and cm^{-3} (Lirs 36). is in units of [cm^{-2}], in [km s^{-1}] and in [K]. | |

Figure 6: Average plots from SMC-B1#1 simulations of different combinations of ratios and densities. Each plot is the result of 50 simulations of different noise contributions generated randomly with statistics in accordance with the estimated observational errors. Input data are: a) model: [ , cm^{-3}, K and 10^{16} cm^{-2}; b) model: [ , cm^{-3}, K and cm^{-2}; c) model: [ , cm^{-3}, K and 10^{17} cm^{-2}. The densities legend is given in the Fig. 3 caption. | |
