[79.05] Submillimeter Observations of Small Young Clusters in Three Large Globules

T.L. Huard, D.A. Weintraub (Vanderbilt U.), G. Sandell (NRAO)

Using the submillimeter common user bolometer array SCUBA on the JCMT, we have mapped regions within three large globules: CB~3, CB~34, and L~810. Our maps were centered on three IRAS sources, each of which are associated with a small cluster of near-infrared young stellar objects (YSOs) as seen from deep optical and/or near-infrared observations. We have detected submillimeter sources associated with the clusters, but clearly without near-infrared counterparts. These submillimeter sources, presumably protostars, suggest that these large globules are currently adding members to the YSO clusters. Thus, star formation within large globules appears to be a continuous process rather than a single, isolated event.

The work of Huard and Weintraub is supported by a NASA grant NAG54428. The work of Sandell is supported by NRAO.
