[139.15] Magnetic Fields in the Star Forming Region S88B

A. P. Sarma (DePaul University), C. L. Brogan (IfA, Hawaii), T. Bourke (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA), T. H. Troland (University of Kentucky), R. M. Crutcher (University of Illinois), P. C. Myers (Harvard-Smithsonian CfA)

We present VLA OH Zeeman observations of the star forming region S88B at 1665 and 1667 MHz. We have combined data from the B and C configurations of the VLA, in order to obtain a high resolution map of the magnetic field (4 arcsec resolution). The line-of-sight field is observed to increase from about 100 microG in the southwest to about 300 microG in the northeast. We shall use our results to examine the importance of the magnetic field in providing support to the cloud.
