In dense cores, much of the molecular material is frozen on the surface of dust grains. AKARI allows the simultaneous observation of multiple lines of site (los) through a core. We observed a 1’x1’ region towards 20 cores, between 2.5–5.0 μm. Data was reduced using our own pipeline (Noble et al. in prep.), producing spectra for 31 los.
