Fig. 5


Intensity, intensity gradients, and relative orientation angle maps from the syntheticobservations presented in Fig. 2. Left panels: HI (teal) and 13CO emission (red) in the velocity channels with the largest spatial correlation, as inferred from the V values shown in Fig. 6. Middle left panels: norm of the gradient of the HI intensity map in the indicated velocity channel. Middle right panels: norm of the gradient of the 13CO intensity map in the indicated velocity channel. Right panels: relative orientation angle ϕ, Eq. (1), between the gradients of the HI and 13CO intensity maps in the indicated velocity channels. The white color in the ϕ map corresponds to areas with no significant gradient in either tracer. The square indicates the block, selected from a 7 × 7 spatial grid, with the largest values of V. Top and bottom panels: face-on and edge-on synthetic observations, respectively.
