Abstract

Abstract. Broadly, we seek to understand the role of pressure in star forming molecular clouds. We examine molecular line data of the Perseus region from the COMPLETE survey alongside radiative transfer-processed ‘observations’ of the turbulent simulations of S. Offner to try to (1) understand to what extent we can actually measure pressure through observations, and (2) study how pressure changes within a cloud’s substructure.
