Abstract: We have measured [O I] 63 mm and [Si II] 35 mm in the central 44" (700 pc) of the starburst galaxy M82. The luminosities in these transitions are each ~0.1 percent of the bolometric luminosity. We model the [O I] in M82 as arising from warm neutral gas photodissociated by FUV flux from OB stars, while most of the [Si II] emission arises from associated H II regions.!
