We present the ISO-LWS spectra (45-200 μm) of the molecular cloud NGC2024 and its associated H II region. We observed the two class 0 FIR3 and FIR5 and the infrared source IRS2. All the spectra appear quite similar, all showing, at approximately the same intensity level, the high-J CO rotational lines (from Jup=17 to Jup=14), and several atomic and ionic lines from Oxygen, Carbon and Nitrogen. The molecular emission has been fitted with a Large Velocity Gradient model, and results originating in an extended and clumpy PDR with a temperature ~ 100 K and a density ~ 106 cm-3. Column densities in excess of 1018 cm-2 are derived from this molecular component. an [OI] 63 μm/[OI] 145 μm line ratio of about 5 is found across all the region, indicating that the 63 μm line is strongly absorbed by a cold foreground gas along the line of sight. From the intensity ratios of the ionic lines relevant physical properties of the ionized gas (N/O abundance, electron density) are derived and compared with those of other galactic H II regions.
