Abstract (from CDS):

Over the past few years several studies have provided estimates of the SFR (star-formation rate) or the total infrared luminosity from just one infrared band. However these relations are generally derived for entire galaxies, which are known to contain a large scale diffuse emission that is not necessarily related to the latest star-formation episode. We provide new relations to estimate the SFR from resolved star-forming regions at 100µm and 160µm.We select individual star-forming regions in the nearby (840kpc) galaxy M33. We estimate the SFR combining the emission in Hα and at 24µm to calibrate the emission at 100µm and 160µm as SFR estimators, as mapped with PACS/Herschel. The data are obtained in the framework of the HERM33ES open time key program.There is less emission in the HII regions at 160µm than at 100µm. Over a dynamic range of almost 2dex in ΣSFR we find that the 100µm emission is a nearly linear estimator of the SFR, whereas that at 160µm is slightly superlinear.The behaviour of individual star-forming regions is surprisingly similar to that of entire galaxies. At high ΣSFR, star formation drives the dust temperature, whereas uncertainties and variations in radiation-transfer and dust-heated processes dominate at low ΣSFR. Detailed modelling of both galaxies and individual star forming regions will be needed to interpret similarities and differences between the two and assess the fraction of diffuse emission in galaxies.
