We present preliminary results from the Southern Galactic Plane Survey (SGPS) Test Region and Parkes data. As part of the pilot project for the Southern Galactic Plane Survey, observations of a Test Region (325Â·5Â° â‰¤ l â‰¤ 333Â·5Â°; -0Â·5Â° â‰¤ b â‰¤ 3Â·5Â°) were completed in December 1998. Single-dish observations of the full survey region (253Â° â‰¤ l â‰¤ 358Â°; |b| â‰¤ 1Â°) with the Parkes Radio Telescope were completed in March 2000. We present a sample of SGPS H I data, with particular attention to the smallest- and largest-scale structures seen in absorption and emission, respectively. On the large scale, we detect many prominent H I shells. On the small scale, we note extremely compact, cold clouds seen in H I self-absorption. We explore how these two classes of objects probe opposite ends of the H I spatial power spectrum.
