Structure and radial equilibrium of filamentary molecular clouds.


Abstract (from CDS):

Recent dust continuum surveys have shown that filamentary structures are ubiquitous along the Galactic plane. While the study of their global properties has gained momentum recently, we are still far from fully understanding their origin and stability. Theories invoking magnetic field have been formulated to help explain the stability of filaments; however, observations are needed to test their predictions. In this paper, we investigate the structure and radial equilibrium of five filamentary molecular clouds with the aim of determining the role that magnetic field may play. To do this, we use continuum and molecular line observations to obtain their physical properties (e.g. mass, temperature and pressure). We find that the filaments have lower lineal masses compared to their lineal virial masses. Their virial parameters and shape of their dust continuum emission suggests that these filaments may be confined by a toroidal dominated magnetic field.
