Abstract

We report observations of a fully sampled (spatially and spectrally) mapping of the central few arcminutes around the Galactic Centre, using the ISO LWS. The maps show the relative spatial distributions in about 20 different emission and absorption lines. The circumnuclear disc is clearly traced by some molecular lines, whilst the central region dominates in other atomic and ionised lines. Spectra are also be shown of several other interesting sources within the Galactic Centre cloud ensemble, including Sgr A West and the `Sickle' cluster.
