The global infrared through millimeter spectral energy distribution can be approximated by a two-temperature model (25 and 63K) with a total luminosity of approximately log(L/L)=5.2. Previous submillimeter imaging resolved this region into a cluster of five dust cores, one of which is associated with the ultracompact HII region G23.955+0.150, and another with a water maser. In our new 2.7mm continuum image obtained with BIMA, only the UCHII region is detected, with total flux and morphology in good agreement with the free-free emission in the VLA centimeter-wave maps. For the other four objects, the nondetections at 2.7mm and in the MSX mid-infrared bands are consistent with cool dust emission with a temperature of 13-40K and a luminosity of 1000-40000L. By combining single-dish and interferometric data, we have identified over two dozen virialized C18O cores in this region that contain ∼40% of the total molecular gas mass present. Description: With the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Association (BIMA) Millimeter Array, IRAS 18317-0757 was simultaneously observed in 110GHz continuum and C18O (1-0). The continuum bandwidth was 600MHz. The spectral resolution for the line data was 0.2MHz (0.53km/s). File Summary:

Note (1): Clumps are identified as [HCW2000] IRAS 18317-0757 SMM N in Simbad. "Total" represents the total flux including extended emission within dotted region of Fig.2. Note (2): Mass, Assuming T=25K and grain emissivity Q=1.0x10-4 at 350um (Hildebrand, 1983QJRAS..24..267H) Note (3): Hydrogen column density Assuming uniform emission of diameter 11" (0.25pc). Note (4): Extinction to a star at the center of the dust core, i.e., half the column density, reduced by a factor of 2 to more accurately estimate the extinction toward a young star at the center of the clump, rather than behind it.
