The G305 star-forming complex : radio continuum and molecular line observations
Clark, J. S.
We present 109–115 GHz (3 mm) wide-field spectral line observations of 12CO, 13CO and C18O J = 1–0 molecular emission and 5.5 and 8.8 GHz (6 and 3 cm) radio continuum emission towards the high-mass star-forming complex known as G305. The morphology of G305 is dominated by a large evacuated cavity at the centre of the complex driven by clusters of O stars surrounded by molecular gas. Our goals are to determine the physical properties of the molecular environment and reveal the relationship between the molecular and ionized gas and star formation in G305
