We have used the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Array to make deep N2H+ 1-0 maps of the prestellar core L183, in order to study the spatial and kinematic substructure within the densest part of the core. Three spatially and kinematically distinct clumps are detected, which we label L183-N1, L183-N2, and L183-N3. L183-N2 is approximately coincident with the submillimeter dust peak and lies at the systemic velocity of L183. Thus we conclude that L183-N2 is the central dense core of L183. L183-N1 and… Expand
