Observations have been made of the southwest outflow lobe of L 1551 in several millimetre and submillimetre molecular lines. Maps have been made in the J = 3-2 and J = 2-1 transitions of CO over areas of 7.5 by 2.5 arcmin and 5 by 5 arcmin respectively, using the 3.8 m United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT). Higher angular resolution maps have also been made in the J = 2-1 CO transition over an area of about 6 by 3.5 arcmin with the NRAO 12 m telescope, and additional observations of the J = 4-3 transitions of HCN, HCO+, and H13CO+ were obtained towards selected positions. The observations, showing a shell structure, an accelerating outflow and possible rotation of the outflowing gas, suggest that the Sweeping-Magnetic-Twist model of Uchida and Shibata is the most appropriate of currently available models of bipolar sources, to explain the L 1551 bipolar outflow.
