Morphology and Kinematics of Filaments in the Serpens and Perseus Molecular Clouds

Abstract: We present H(exp 13)CO(exp +) (J= 1-0) and HNC (J= 1-0) maps of regions in Serpens South, Serpens Main, and NGC 1333 containing filaments. We also observe the Serpens regions using H(exp 13)CN (J= 1-0). These dense gas tracer molecular line observations carried out with CARMA have an angular resolution of approximately 7″, a spectral resolution of approximately 0.16 km s (exp -1), and a sensitivity of 50-100 mJy beam (exp -1). Although the large-scale structure compares well with the Herschel…
