J/A+A/440/151     Observations at 850um in Perseus clusters    (Hatchell+, 2005)

Star formation in Perseus. Clusters, filaments and the conditions for star formation. Hatchell J., Richer J.S., Fuller G.A., Qualtrough C.J., Ladd E.F., Chandler C.J. <Astron. Astrophys., 440, 151-161 (2005)> =2005A&A...440..151H (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

Covering 3deg2, this submillimetre continuum survey for protostellar activity is second in size only to that of rho Ophiuchus (Johnstone et al., 2004ApJ...611L..45J). Complete above 0.4M (5σ detection in a 14" beam), we detect a total of 91 protostars and pre-stellar cores. Of these, 80% lie in clusters, representative of star formation across the Galaxy. Two of the groups of cores are associated with the young stellar clusters IC 348 and NGC 1333, and are consistent with a steady or reduced star formation rate in the last 0.5Myr, but not an increasing one. In Perseus, 40-60% of cores are in small clusters (<50M) and isolated objects, much more than the 10% suggested from infrared studies. Complementing the dust continuum, we present a C18O map of the whole cloud at 1' resolution. Description: Images of Perseus were obtained at 850 and 450µm using SCUBA on the JCMT during 20 nights between 1999 and 2003. File Summary:

Note (1): If the core satisfies the cluster membership criterion (Sect. 3) then the cluster name is given here. Note (3): References are to the earliest previous detection of the submillimetre source. Full cross-identifications with sources at other wavelengths are non-trivial due to differing beam sizes and are left for a future analysis, but to indicate an obvious likely counterpart (e.g., IRAS), "No SMM/MM source" is marked in the "Name" column instead of "None".
