Fig. 4


Mean radial source density profiles as a function of distance to the central position of the H ii regions, obtained by azimuthally averaging from the surface density maps. The black solid line represents the cumulative count of the different source types (color-coded solid lines). The black dash-dotted line represents the mean radial source density profile of the intrinsically red sources from Robitaille et al. (2008). The distance is normalized by the radius of the H ii regions (dotted vertical line). The error bars show the (± 1σ) dispersion of the radial profiles. The dashed vertical line represents the HPBW (=0.125 Reff) of the smoothing gaussian used in the surface density maps.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
