Abstract (from CDS):
We present submillimeter maps of regions within three large globules, CB 3, CB 34, and L 810. Our maps are centered on three IRAS sources, each of which is associated with a small cluster of near-infrared young stellar objects (YSOs) as seen from deep optical and/or near-infrared observations. We have detected submillimeter sources associated with the YSO clusters. The submillimeter emission appears to be primarily from small clusters of protostars rather than from the sources previously detected in the near-infrared. This result suggests that these large globules are currently adding protostars to these clusters. Thus, star formation within each of these large globules appears to be a continuous process rather than a single, isolated event.
