[140.13] A COMPLETE Survey for Dense Clumps in Perseus

M. Borkin, N. Ridge, S. Schnee, A. Goodman, J. Pineda (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

As part of the COMPLETE Survey of Star Forming Regions we have recently completed new high-sensitivity 12CO and 13CO maps of Perseus, covering an area of almost 4 square degrees, and containing 150,000 individual spectra in each map.

We have used the Clumpfind algorithm on the 13CO map to search for dense molecular condensations. We compare the results of using the 2d and 3d versions of the code, and show, as expected, that the 3d version is able to reveal clumps which are missed by the 2d version. Finally, we present a list of all the dense clumps in the known star-forming regions NGC1333 and IC348.
