We present a survey of 28 molecular outflows driven by low-mass protostars, all of which are sufficiently isolated spatially and/or kinematically to fully separate into individual outflows. Using a combination of new and archival data from several single-dish telescopes, 17 outflows are mapped in 12CO (2-1) and 17 are mapped in 12CO (3-2), with 6 mapped in both transitions. For each outflow, we calculate and tabulate the mass (M flow), momentum (P flow), kinetic energy (E flow), mechanical… Expand
Evolution of Mass Outflow in Protostars
We have surveyed 84 Class 0, Class I, and flat-spectrum protostars in mid-infrared [Si II], [Fe II] and [S I] line emission, and 11 of these in far-infrared [O I] emission. We use the results toExpand
Widening of Protostellar Outflows: an Infrared Outflow Survey in Low Luminosity Objects
We present an outflow survey toward 20 Low Luminosity Objects (LLOs), namely protostars with an internal luminosity lower than 0.2 Lsun. Although a number of studies have reported the properties ofExpand
Mid-J CO Line Observations of Protostellar Outflows in the Orion Molecular Clouds
Ten protostellar outflows in the Orion molecular clouds were mapped in the 12CO/13CO J = 6 → 5 and 12CO J = 7 → 6 lines. The maps of these mid-J CO lines have an angular resolution of about 10″ and aExpand
