We report the H13CO+ (J = 1-0) survey observations toward embedded clusters obtained using the Nobeyama 45 m telescope, which were performed to follow up our previous study in the C18O survey with a dense gas tracer. Our aim is to address the evolution of cluster-forming clumps. We observed the same 14 clusters in C18O, which are located at distances from 0.3 to 2.1 kpc with a 27'' resolution (corresponding to the Jeans length for most of our targets) in H13CO+. We detected the 13 clumps in… Expand
Maps of Massive Clumps in the Early Stage of Cluster Formation: Two Modes of Cluster Formation, Coeval or Non-Coeval?
We present maps of 7 young massive molecular clumps within 5 target regions in the C18O (J=1-0) line emission, using the Nobeyama 45m telescope. These clumps, which are not associated with clusters,Expand

Molecular Clouds Toward the Super Star Cluster NGC3603; Possible Evidence for a Cloud-Cloud Collision in Triggering the Cluster Formation
We present new large field observations of molecular clouds with NANTEN2 toward the super star cluster NGC3603 in the transitions 12CO(J=2-1, J=1-0) and 13CO(J=2-1, J=1-0). We suggest that twoExpand
Cloud-cloud collision as a trigger of the high-mass star formation; a molecular line study in RCW120
