ADC_Keywords: Accretion ; YSOs ; Spectroscopy ; Photometry, infrared ; Photometry, SDSS ; Extinction ; Radial velocities ; Rotational velocities Keywords: circumstellar matter - ISM: individual (NGC 2068, NGC 2071) - planetary systems: protoplanetary disks - stars: formation - stars: pre-main sequence Abstract: We study the disk and accretion properties of young stars in the NGC 2068 and NGC 2071 clusters. Using low-resolution optical spectra, we define a membership sample and determine an age for the region of ∼2Myr. Using high-resolution spectra of the Hα line we study the accretion activity of these likely members and also examine the disk properties of the likely members using IRAC and MIPS mid-infrared photometry. A substantial fraction (79%) of the 67 members have an infrared excess while all of the stars with significant infrared excess show evidence for active accretion. We find three populations of evolved disks (IRAC weak, MIPS weak, and transition disks) all of which show decreased accretion activity in addition to the evidence for evolution in the dust disk. Description: Low-resolution optical spectra were taken with the Hectospec instrument on the MMT (Multiple Mirror Telescope, Mount Hopkins, USA), in 2004 November 5 and 2005 October 23. High-resolution optical spectra were taken with the Hectochelle instrument on the MMT. Two fields, each with an exposure time of 3x1200s, were observed on 2004 December 3, 2005 and November 14. Near-infrared JHKs photometry was taken from the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS, Cat. II/246). Mid-infrared photometry was obtained using the IRAC and MIPS cameras aboard the Spitzer Space Telescope. Optical photometry was taken from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS, Cat. II/294); the Orion field was observed as part of an early calibration run through the Galactic plane in the fall of 1998 and the fall of 1999. File Summary:

Note (1): SDSS u band data is not reported here because of the red leak in the filter. Note (2): 'a' indicates that the source is not resolved from a nearby star in the J band and only an upper limit is reported.

Note (1): Flag as follows: a = [OI] 6300Å emission detected in optical spectra. b = Variable in the optical as observed by Briceno et al. (2005, Cat. J/AJ/129/907). They measured a spectral type of K6, and Hα and Li EWs of 98 and 0.4Å respectively. c = Binary from Padgett et al. (1997ApJ...477..705P). d = X-ray emission detected by Skinner et al.

Note (1): 'a' indicates that the Photometry may be contaminated by background source with very cool SED, possible a Class 0/I source. Note (2): The typical uncertainty in effective temperature is 5%, while the typical uncertainty in luminosity, which includes uncertainty in Teff and photometric uncertainty, is 10%. Note (3): derived assuming L=4πR2σT4eff. Note (4): 'b' indicates that, with no available optical photometry, and extended emission contaminating the 2MASS photometry, an accurate extinction could not be derived and we assume a lower limit of 0. Note (5): If the Hα profile indicates no active accretion then a 0 is used. If no high-resolution spectrum is available, then no number is reported. Note (6): Flag as follows: c = R-band magnitude from Siess et al. (2000A&A...358..593S) 2Myr isochrone used instead of the observed R-band magnitude to derive the accretion rate from veiling. n = no stand. Note (7): SED slope, α, from a least-squares fit of a power-law (λ.Fλ∝λα) of the four IRAC bands for each star Note (8): Disk descriptors as follows: Strong = (αIRAC>-1.6,[8.0]-[24]>2.4), MIPS-weak = (αIRAC←1.6,[8.0]-[24]<2.4), IRAC weak = (-1.6>αIRAC>-2.5), Gap = small short wavelength excess, large [24] excess, No = no disk (αIRAC←2.5).

Note (1): b = Hα profile shows an inverse P Cygni shape indicating active accretion, despite the small FW 10%. Note (2): The R value of Tonry & Davis (1979AJ.....84.1511T). The 90% confidence interval for vsini is approximately vsini/(1+R).
