Infrared Dark Clouds: precursors to star clusters - Dr Jill Rathborne Colloquium
Infrared Dark Clouds (IRDCs) are cold, dense molecular clouds identified as extinction features against the bright mid-IR Galactic background. Our recent 1.2 mm continuum emission survey of IRDCs reveal many compact (< 0.5 pc) and massive (10-2100 Msun) cores within them. These pre-stellar cores hold the key to understanding IRDCs and
