A role for self-gravity at multiple length scales in the process of star formation.
CLUMPFIND featureidentification algorithms as applied to 13
CO emission from the L1448 region of Perseus. a:
3D visualization of the surfaces. b:
CLUMPFIND segmentation. A very large number of clumps appears, because of the sensitivity of CLUMPFIND to noise and small-scale structure in the data. Read more here
