  • A hybrid JHKs−W1W2W3W4 high-spectral index (α) selection scheme was employed to identify (sub)-clusters of class I/f candidate protostars (YSOs) in WISE observations (the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer). n>104 candidate YSOs were detected owing to WISE’s advantageous all-sky spatial coverage, and a subsample (n∼200) of their heavily-obscured host (sub)clusters were correlated with the Avedisova (Astron. Rep. 46:193, 2002) and Dias et al. (Astron. Astrophys. 389:871, 2002) catalogs of star… CONTINUE READING
