Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
We review progress over the past decade in observations of large-scale star formation, with a focus on the interface between extragalactic and Galactic studies. Methods of measuring gas contents and
The Spitzer c2d legacy results: star-formation rates and efficiencies; evolution and lifetimes
The c2d Spitzer Legacy project obtained images and photometry with both IRAC and MIPS instruments for five large, nearby molecular clouds. Three of the clouds were also mapped in dust continuum
MAMBO Mapping Of Spitzer c2d Small Clouds And Cores
Aims. To study the structure of nearby (<500 pc) dense starless and star-forming cores with the particular goal to identify and understand evolutionary trends in core properties, and to explore the
THE STAR FORMATION RATE AND GAS SURFACE DENSITY RELATION IN THE MILKY WAY: IMPLICATIONS FOR EXTRAGALACTIC STUDIES
We investigate the relation between star formation rate (SFR) and gas surface densities in Galactic star-forming regions using a sample of young stellar objects (YSOs) and massive dense clumps. Our
The Physical Conditions for Massive Star Formation: Dust Continuum Maps and Modeling
Fifty-one dense cores associated with water masers were mapped at 350 μm. These cores are very luminous, 103 < Lbol/L☉ < 106, indicative of the formation of massive stars. Dust continuum contour
THE BOLOCAM GALACTIC PLANE SURVEY: SURVEY DESCRIPTION AND DATA REDUCTION
We present the Bolocam Galactic Plane Survey (BGPS), a 1.1 mm continuum survey at 33'' effective resolution of 170 deg2 of the Galactic Plane visible from the northern hemisphere. The BGPS is one of
PROPERTIES OF THE YOUNGEST PROTOSTARS IN PERSEUS,SERPENS,AND OPHIUCHUS
We present an unbiased census of deeply embedded protostars in Perseus, Serpens, and Ophiuchus, assembled by combining large-scale 1.1 mm Bolocam continuum and Spitzer Legacy surveys. We identify
The Mass Distribution and Lifetime of Prestellar Cores in Perseus, Serpens, and Ophiuchus
We present an unbiased census of starless cores in Perseus, Serpens, and Ophiuchus, assembled by comparing large-scale Bolocam 1.1 mm continuum emission maps with Spitzer c2d surveys. We use the c2d
THE MID-INFRARED EXTINCTION LAW IN THE OPHIUCHUS, PERSEUS, AND SERPENS MOLECULAR CLOUDS
We compute the mid-IR extinction law from 3.6 to 24 μm in three molecular clouds—Ophiuchus, Perseus, and Serpens—by combining data from the "Cores to Disks" Spitzer Legacy Science program with deep
Physical conditions in regions of star formation
▪ Abstract The physical conditions in molecular clouds control the nature and rate of star formation, with consequences for planet formation and galaxy evolution. The focus of this review is on the
