[34.05D] A Multi-wavelength Study of Star Formation Around HII Regions

J.L. Karr (SIRTF Science Center)

I will discuss a multi-wavelength study of star formation around HII regions in the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey (CGPS). Data from the CGPS and other surveys have been used to investigate the environment of young, massive stars, their surrounding HII regions, the interaction with the surrounding cold ISM, and the nearby YSO population. The use of multi-wavelength data probes multiple components of the interstellar medium, while the survey nature of the data allows the study of a disparate range of HII regions and comparison with star formation and ISM properties in more quiescent areas. This talk will concentrate on properties of YSOs and molecular material in different regions of the survey, including molecular clump properties and the size-linewidth relation.
