The circumstellar environment of low-mass protostars: A millimeter continuum mapping survey ?
We present a complete 1.3 mm continuum mapping survey of the embedded young stellar objects (YSOs) in the Taurus molecular cloud. We have also imaged several isolated Bok globules, as well as
Submillimeter Continuum Observations of rho Ophiuchi A: The Candidate Protostar VLA 1623 and Prestellar Clumps
We have mapped the submillimeter continuum emission from the rich star-forming core, ρ Oph A, at 350, 450, 800, and 1300 μm using the JCMT and IRAM 30 m telescopes. In addition to the diffuse
ISOCAM observations of the rho Ophiuchi cloud: Luminosity and mass functions of the pre-main sequence embedded cluster
We present the results of the first extensive mid-infrared (IR) imaging survey of the rho Ophiuchi embedded cluster, performed with the ISOCAM camera on board the ISO satellite. The main molecular
A census of dense cores in the Aquila cloud complex: SPIRE/PACS observations from the Herschel Gould Belt survey
We present and discuss the results of the Herschel Gould Belt survey (HGBS) observations in an ~11 deg2 area of the Aquila molecular cloud complex at d ~ 260 pc, imaged with the SPIRE and PACS
Molecular line study of the very young protostar IRAM 04191 in Taurus: Infall, rotation, and outflow
We present a detailed millimeter line study of the circumstellar environment of the low-luminosity Class 0 protostar IRAM 04191+1522 in the Taurus molecular cloud. New line observations demonstrate
Discovery of an Extremely Young Accreting Protostar in Taurus
We report the discovery of a new, very young accreting class 0 protostar in the southern part of the Taurus molecular cloud. This object, designated by IRAM 04191+1522, coincides with a cold (T~12 K)
Global collapse of molecular clouds as a formation mechanism for the most massive stars
The relative importance of primordial molecular cloud fragmentation versus large-scale accretion still remains to be assessed in the context of massive core/star formation. Studying the kinematics of
