Compact H II regions, mainly radio observations

  • H. J. Habing
Part III: IR-Sources, Masers and Compact H II Regions
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 42)


Small dense clumps of ionized gas exist during various stages in the evolution of H II regions. They can be manifest as bright rims or as very small, very compact H II regions surrounding new born stars. Examples of both types of objects are given and some speculation is made about how massive stars are formed.
