J/ApJ/696/298             Dense cores in Perseus                 (Foster+, 2009)

Dense cores in Perseus: the influence of stellar content and cluster environment. Foster J.B., Rosolowsky E.W., Kauffmann J., Pineda J.E., Borkin M.A., Caselli P., Myers P.C., Goodman A.A. <Astrophys. J., 696, 298-319 (2009)> =2009ApJ...696..298F
ADC_Keywords: Interstellar medium ; Molecular clouds ; YSOs Keywords: ISM: clouds - ISM: molecules - radio lines: ISM Abstract: We present the chemistry, temperature, and dynamical state of a sample of 193 dense cores or core candidates in the Perseus Molecular cloud and compare the properties of cores associated with young stars and clusters with those which are not. The combination of our NH3 and CCS observations with previous millimeter, submillimeter, and Spitzer data available for this cloud enables us both to determine core properties precisely and to accurately classify cores as starless or protostellar.

Note (1): These reference numbers are from Rosolowsky et al. (2008, Cat. J/ApJS/175/509; <[RPF2008] NH3SRC NNN> in Simbad), which can be consulted for individual core positions and properties. Note (2): Class as follows: L = Starless, S = Protostellar, L? = Uncertain Starless, S? = Uncertain Protostellar Note (3): Evans et al. (2007, Final Delivery of Data from the c2d Legacy Project: IRAC and MIPS (Pasadena, CA: Spitzer Science Center)), considered associated if a YSO candidate falls within 1 FWHM of the GBT beam (31") of the pointing location. Note (4): Reference as follows: e = Evans et al. (2007, Final Delivery of Data from the c2d Legacy Project: IRAC and MIPS (Pasadena, CA: Spitzer Science Center)) f = Jijina et al. 1999, Cat.
