Abstract (from CDS):

We present high spectral resolution millimeter mapped observations of seven prestellar cores in the Coalsack, including imaging in five optically thin molecular species of the kinematic structure of two of the densest cores, C2 and C4. Various collapse-critical indices are calculated; critical masses needed for collapse are consistently greater than those observed, the latter ranging from 0.4 to 2.4 M. The molecular emission in several of the cores shows line profiles with infall characteristics as well as elongated areas of increased line widths and reversals of center velocity gradients, implying that accretion disks may be forming.
