Maps of the absorption column density, derived from the molecular gas (left panel), the atomic gas (middle panel), and the sum of the two previous components (right panel) when integrating over radial velocities from –10 km s-1 to 15 km s-1 (see Sect. 3 for details). This specific velocity range provides an estimate of the absorption column for a source located just behind the Vela molecular ridge. The position of PSR J0855 − 4644 is shown with a black cross and the XMM-Newton pointings used in this study are represented by the white circles in the right panel. The white contours are taken from a ROSAT high-energy image (E > 1.3 keV) and reveal the SNR RX J0852.0−4622.
