A comparison between magnetic field directions inferred from Planck and starlight polarimetry toward Gould Belt clouds.

GU Q. and LI H.-B.

Abstract (from CDS):

We compare the magnetic field (B-field) orientations inferred from Planck 353 GHz thermal dust polarization and starlight polarimetry data and study the cloud-field alignment based on these two tracers within Gould Belt clouds, which show good agreement with each other. Furthermore, we analyze two fundamentally different alignment studies-global (cloud scale, ∼10-100 pc) cloud-field alignment, which compares mean fields and global cloud orientations, and local (pixel size scale, ∼0.1-1 pc) structure-field alignment, which compares this relation pixel by pixel-and find the connection between them.
