Searching for initial stage of massive star formation around the H II region G18.2-0.3 [GA]

http://arxiv.org/abs/1703.02364


Sometimes the early star formation can be found in cold and dense molecular clouds, such as infrared dark cloud (IRDC). Considering star formation often occurs in clustered condition, HII regions may be triggering a new generation of star formation, so we can search for initial stage of massive star formation around HII regions. Based on that above, this work is to introduce one method of how to search for initial stage of massive star formation around HII regions. Towards one sample of the HII region G18.2-0.3, multiwavelength observations are carried out to investigate its physical condition. In contrast and analysis, we find three potential initial stages of massive star formation, suggesting that it is feasible to search for initial stage of massive star formation around HII regions.
