  author={B. Lefloch and J. Cernicharo},
The Trifid nebula is a young HII region undergoing a burst of star formation. In this article, we report on far-infrared and millimeter continuum and line observations of several massive and bright protostellar sources in the vicinity of the exciting star of the nebula, just behind the ionization front. These objects are probably young protostars (Class 0) and are associated with very massive cores (M ∼ 8− 90 M⊙) powering young energetic outflows. Analysis of the far-infrared emission in the 45… Expand
