Abstract: The infrared wavelength region provides a useful window within which to study shock-cloud interactions, since it includes numerous diagnostic ionic and molecular lines. Many of these radiative signatures occur at mid-infrared wavelengths, where ground observations are impossible because of intense atmospheric absorption. Hence, space observatories, e.g., AKARI, are crucial in studying shock-cloud interactions. We present observations of interaction regions around two supernova remnants—HB21 and G272.2–3.2—observed with AKARI, which we interpret as being due to shocked H2 and ionic emissions.
