J/ApJ/671/1800      SCUBA observations of ρ Oph cloud     (Andrews+, 2007)

A submillimeter view of circumstellar dust disks in ρ Ophiuchi. Andrews S.M., Williams J.P. <Astrophys. J., 671, 1800-1812 (2007)> =2007ApJ...671.1800A
ADC_Keywords: Molecular clouds ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; Millimetric/submm sources Keywords: circumstellar matter - planetary systems: protoplanetary disks - solar system: formation - stars: pre-main sequence Abstract: We present new multiwavelength submillimeter continuum measurements of the circumstellar dust around 48 young stars in the rho Ophiuchi dark clouds. Supplemented with previous 1.3mm observations of an additional 99 objects from the literature, the statistical distributions of disk masses and submillimeter colors are calculated and compared to those in the Taurus-Auriga region. These basic submillimeter properties of young stellar objects in both environments are shown to be essentially identical. Description: The Submillimeter Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) instrument at the 15m James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) was used to observe 48 eho Oph YSOs during two runs in 2004 April and 2005 June. The observations were conducted in photometry mode, providing simultaneous measurements of the 450 and 850um continuum emission within FWHM beam diameters of 9" and 14", respectively. Images of the 350um continuum for seven YSOs were obtained with the Submillimeter High Angular Resolution Camera II (SHARC II) on the 10m Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO) telescope in 2004 March and June.

Note (1): From the spectral index α defined in the 2-25µm range, the SED classification is the following: FS = Flat Spectrum, (star + disk + envelope?), -0.3<α<0.3; I = Class I (star + disk + envelope), α≤-0.3; II = Class II (star + disk), 0.3≤α≤1.6; III = Class III (star only), α>1.6 Note (2): Quoted errors are the 1σ rms noise levels and do not include systematic errors in the absolute flux calibration (∼25% at 350 and 450µm, ∼10% at 850µm, and ∼20% at 1.3mm). Note (3): Upper limits are taken at the 3σ confidence level. Note (4): Individual notes as follows: 1 = The 1.3mm flux densities are from Andre and Montmerle (1994ApJ...420..837A). The 1σ rms uncertainties were typically assumed to be ∼10mJy 2 = 800µm flux densities from Jensen et al. (1996ApJ...458..312J) are listed F850um 3 = The 1.3mm flux densities are from Nurnberger et al. (1998A&A...330..549N) 4 = The 1.3mm flux densities are from Motte et al. (1998A&A...336..150M) 5 = The 1.3mm flux densities for WL 20 (S) and WSB 60 are from the interferometric survey of Andrews and Williams (2007ApJ...659..705A) 6 = The 1.3mm flux densities are from Stanke et al. 2006, Cat.
