Abstract (from CDS):
We present a survey of shocks and outflows in the Chamaeleon I star-forming complex using Hα, [S II], and SDSS i' images obtained from the ground, an i' image obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope, and 4.5 µm images obtained with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope. We find new Herbig-Haro (HH) objects and extensions to the previously cataloged shocks that trace parts of at least 20 distinct outflows from young stars. Some HH objects mark the presence of giant outflows, the largest of which is powered by Cha-MMS1 and associated with HH 49/50 near the Ced 110 region. Other large flows are powered by Cha-MMS2 in the Ced 112 region and the IRN in the Ced 111 region. Although some shocks exhibit infrared emission in the IRAC bands, most notably HH 49/50 (the ``tornado''), most outflows in the Cha I clouds are not detected in the Spitzer IRAC bands. This result is consistent with the general lack of extensive 2.12 µm H2emission from Cha I.
