The Orion Nebula and the associated region have been extensively studied over the whole range of the infrared part of the spectrum (near infrared, 1–3µ; middle infrared, 3–30µ; far infrared, 30–500µ; and submillimeter range, 500µ-1 mm). A compilation of the available maps produced from observations of the infrared continuum emission is presented in Table 3.1.I. The infrared continuum is thought to be thermal reemission of the stellar UV radiation absorbed by the dust contained within the ionized gas (M42) and the associated neutral/molecular complex. Some comments concerning the physics of the infrared continuum emission are included in the Appendix, Section A.III.2.
