[41.16] High-Mass Protostars in the Mid-Infrared: Understanding Spitzer Data.

R. Indebetouw (U. Wisconsin), B. A. Whitney (Space Science Institute), GLIMPSE Team

The Spitzer Space Telescope is providing a detailed new view of high-mass star formation in the Galaxy. We present new 2D radiative transfer models of Spitzer data of protostars with different masses and circumstellar dust distributions. We discuss how these can be used to understand the nature of sources with infrared excesses.

Funded by NASA through the Spitzer Space Telescope Lecacy Science Program and Long Term Space Astrophysics grant NAG5-8933 awarded to B.A.W.
