The whole of the Taurus region (a total area of 52 deg2) has been observed by the Herschel Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) and Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) instruments at wavelengths of 70, 160, 250, 350 and 500 μm as part of the Herschel Gould Belt Survey. In this paper we present the first results from the part of the Taurus region that includes the Barnard 18 and L1536 clouds. A new source-finding routine, the Cardiff Source-finding AlgoRithm (csar…

Context. Taurus represents an ideal region to study the three-dimensional distribution of the young stellar population and relate it to the associated molecular cloud. Aims. The second Gaia data
First Results from the Herschel Gould Belt Survey in Taurus and Comparison with Other Clouds
The unparalleled sensitivity and mapping speed of the ESA Herschel Space Observatory makes it possible to now map entire star formation regions in the time it would once have taken to map a single
Properties of starless and prestellar cores in Taurus revealed by Herschel SPIRE/PACS imaging
The density and temperature structures of dense cores in the L1495 cloud of the Taurus star-forming region are investigated using Herschel Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver and Photodetector
A census of dense cores in the Taurus L1495 cloud from the Herschel Gould Belt Survey
We present a catalogue of dense cores in a ∼4° × 2° field of the Taurus star-forming region, inclusive of the L1495 cloud, derived from Herschel SPIRE and PACS observations in the 70 μm, 160 μm, 250
Herschel Gould Belt Survey Observations of Dense Cores in the Cepheus Flare Clouds
We present Herschel SPIRE and PACS maps of the Cepheus Flare clouds L1157, L1172, L1228, L1241, and L1251, observed by the Herschel Gould Belt Survey of nearby star-forming molecular clouds. Through
The census of dense cores in the Serpens region from the Herschel Gould Belt Survey
Abstract The Herschel Gould Belt survey mapped the nearby (d l 500 pc) star-forming regions to understand better how the prestellar phase influences the star formation process. Here we report a
The Herschel exploitation of local galaxy andromeda (HELGA). VI. the distribution and properties of molecular cloud associations in m31
In this paper we present a catalog of giant molecular clouds (GMCs) in the Andromeda (M31) galaxy extracted from the Herschel Exploitation of Local Galaxy Andromeda (HELGA) data set. GMCs are
The JCMT and Herschel Gould Belt Surveys: a comparison of SCUBA-2 and Herschel data of dense cores in the Taurus dark cloud L1495
We present a comparison of Submillimetre Common User Bolometer Array-2 (SCUBA-2) 850-μm and Herschel 70–500-μm observations of the L1495 filament in the Taurus Molecular Cloud with the goal of
The JCMT Gould Belt Survey: first results from the SCUBA-2 observations of the Ophiuchus molecular cloud and a virial analysis of its prestellar core population
In this paper, we present the first observations of the Ophiuchus molecular cloud performed as part of the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) Gould Belt Survey (GBS) with the SCUBA-2 instrument. We
Chains of dense cores in the Taurus L1495/B213 complex
(Abridged) We study the kinematics of the dense gas in the Taurus L1495/B213 filamentary region to investigate the mechanism of core formation. We use observations of N2H+(1-0) and C18O(2-1) carried


Initial highlights from the Herschel Gould Belt survey
We summarize the first results from the Gould Belt survey, obtained toward the Aquila Rift and Polaris Flare regions during the 'science demonstration phase' of Herschel. Our 70-500 micron images
Large-Scale Structure of the Molecular Gas in Taurus Revealed by High Linear Dynamic Range Spectral Line Mapping
We report the results of a 100 deg2 survey of the Taurus molecular cloud region in 12CO and 13CO J = 1→ 0. The image of the cloud in each velocity channel includes ≃3 × 106 Nyquist-sampled pixels on
The Herschel view of the on-going star formation in the Vela-C molecular cloud
Aims. As part of the Herschel guaranteed time key programme “HOBYS”, we present the PACS and SPIRE photometric survey of the star-forming region Vela-C, one of the nearest sites of low-to-high-mass
Herschel view of the Taurus B211/3 filament and striations: evidence of filamentary growth?
We present first results from the Herschel Gould Belt survey for the B211/L1495 region in the Taurus molecular cloud. Thanks to their high sensitivity and dynamic range, the Herschel images reveal
A Herschel study of the properties of starless cores in the Polaris Flare dark cloud region using PACS and SPIRE
The Polaris Flare cloud region contains a great deal of extended emission. It is at high declination and high Galactic latitude. It was previously seen strongly in IRAS Cirrus emission at 100
