J/A+A/447/221       Dust continuum emission from IRAS sources   (Beltran+, 2006)

Search for massive protostar candidates in the southern hemisphere. II. Dust continuum emission. Beltran M.T., Brand J., Cesaroni R., Fontani F., Pezzuto S., Testi L., Molinari S. <Astron. Astrophys., 447, 221-233 (2006)> =2006A&A...447..221B
ADC_Keywords: Infrared sources ; Interstellar medium Keywords: stars: circumstellar matter - stars: formation - ISM: clouds - radio continuum: ISM - infrared: ISM Abstract: In an ongoing effort to identify and study high-mass protostellar candidates we have observed in various tracers a sample of 235 sources selected from the IRAS Point Source Catalog (Cat. II/125), mostly with delta←30°, with the SEST antenna at millimeter wavelengths. The sample contains 142 Low sources and 93 High, which are believed to be in different evolutionary stages. Both sub-samples have been studied in detail by comparing their physical properties and morphologies. Description: The 1.2-mm continuum observations were carried out with the 37-channel bolometer array SIMBA (SEST Imaging Bolometer Array) at the SEST (Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope), on July 16-20, 2002 and July 9-13, 2003.
