Dynamical processes in star forming regions: feedback and turbulence generation Journal Article uri icon



  • AbstractYoung stellar objects (YSOs) inject large amounts of momentum and kinetic energy into their surroundings. Feedback from low mass YSOs is dominated by their outflows. However, as stellar mass increases, UV photo-heating and ionization play increasingly important roles. Massive stars produce powerful stellar winds and explode as supernovae within 3 – 40 Myr after birth. While low-mass protostellar feedback can drive turbulence in cloud cores and even disrupt the star forming environment, feedback from massive stars plays important roles in the generation of cloud structure and motions in the entire ISM.
