Triggered star formation within bright-rimmed clouds

Urquhart, J. S.; Thompson, M. A.; Morgan, L. K. and White, Glenn (2006). Triggered star formation within bright-rimmed clouds. Proceeding of the International Astronomical Union, 2 p. 483.



We present the results of a multi-wavelength line and continuum study of the brightrimmed cloud SFO 75 in an attempt to determine whether the ionisation front and its associated shocks, driven by the nearby O star, have riggered the formation of a new generation of stars
within this bright-rimmed cloud.
