Thioxoethenylidene (CCS) is an abundant interstellar molecule and a good tracer of high density and evolutionary stage of dense molecular clouds. It is also a suitable candidate for Zeeman splitting observations for its high splitting factor and narrow thermal line widths. We report here Expanded Very Large Array 22.3 GHz observations of three dense molecular cores TMC-1, TMC-1C, and L1521B in the Taurus molecular cloud complex to image the CCS 21–10 transition. For all three sources, the… 

An Ammonia Spectral Map of the L1495-B218 Filaments in the Taurus Molecular Cloud. II. CCS and HC7N Chemistry and Three Modes of Star Formation in the Filaments

We present deep CCS and HC7N observations of the L1495-B218 filaments in the Taurus molecular cloud obtained using the K-band focal plane array on the 100 m Green Bank Telescope. We observed the

NEW MASER EMISSION FROM NONMETASTABLE AMMONIA IN NGC 7538. II. GREEN BANK TELESCOPE OBSERVATIONS INCLUDING WATER MASERS

We present new maser emission from 14NH3 (9,6) in NGC 7538. Our observations include the known spectral features near vLSR = −60 km s−1 and −57 km s−1 and several more features extending to −46 km

SUBSTELLAR-MASS CONDENSATIONS IN PRESTELLAR CORES

We present combined Submillimeter Array and single-dish images of the (sub)millimeter dust continuum emission toward two prestellar cores, SM1 and B2-N5, in the nearest star-cluster-forming region, ρ

PHYSICAL CONDITIONS IN QUIESCENT DARK CLOUD CORES DETERMINED FROM MULTITRANSITION OBSERVATIONS OF CCS

We have studied three transitions of the CCS molecule to determine physical conditions in L1498 and TMC-1D, two narrow-line dense cores in the Taurus region. We observed the NJ = 12 → 01, 34 → 23,

Dense Cores in Dark Clouds. XI. A Survey for N2H+, C3H2, and CCS

We have used the 3 mm receiver and upgraded antenna of Haystack Observatory to make high spatial and spectral resolution observations of lines of N2H+ and C3H2 in 60 dense cores. Both species are

Chemical Variation in Molecular Cloud Cores in the Orion A Cloud. II

We have mapped six molecular cloud cores in the Orion A giant molecular cloud (GMC), whose kinetic temperatures range from 10 to 30 K, in CCS and N2H+ with Nobeyama 45 m radio telescope to study

33.8 GHz CCS Survey of Molecular Cores in Dark Clouds

We have conducted a survey of the CCS JN = 32-21 line toward 11 dark clouds and star-forming regions at 30″ spatial resolution and 0.054 km s-1 velocity resolution. CCS was detected only in quiescent

High-Resolution Molecular Line Observations of the Environment of the Class 0 Source B1-IRS

In this work we present VLA observations of the NH3, CCS, and H2O maser emission at 1 cm from the star-forming region B1-IRS (IRAS 03301+3057) with ≃5'' (=1750 AU) of angular resolution. The CCS

CCS Imaging of the Starless Core L1544: An Envelope with Infall and Rotation

We have carried out observations of the starless core L1544 in the CCS (JN = 32-21) line at 9 mm wavelength using the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Association array. The maps show an elongated

CCS Observations of the Protostellar Envelope of B335

We present single-dish and interferometric spectral line observations of CCS at 22 GHz toward the core of B335, a classical example of a young protostellar region. We combined the VLA and DSN 70 m

Evolutionary status of the pre-protostellar core L1498.

It is concluded that L1498 could become unstable to rapid collapse to form a protostar in less than 5 x 10(6) yr, and the differences between the CCS, CS, NH3 and NH3 emission are caused by a time-dependent effect as the core evolves slowly.

VERY LARGE ARRAY OBSERVATIONS OF THE INFRARED DARK CLOUD G19.30+0.07

We present Very Large Array observations of ammonia (NH3) (1,1), (2,2), and dicarbon sulfide (CCS) (21–10) emission toward the infrared dark cloud (IRDC) G19.30+0.07 at ∼22 GHz. The NH3 emission

Measuring the Magnetic Field Strength in L1498 with Zeeman-splitting Observations of CCS

We have measured the Zeeman splitting of the CCS JN = 32-21 line at 33 GHz toward L1498, a dense preprotostellar core, in an effort to measure the line-of-sight component of its magnetic field. With
