Cumulative distribution function of the difference in position angle between the local magnetic field and the NESTs semi-major axis (dashed-dotted blue line). The long dashed light blue histogram corresponds to the subset of NESTs whose semi-major axis is more than twice as large as their semi-minor axis and, thus, whose position angle is best defined. The green solid and red hatched histograms are the corresponding distribution for the symmetry axis of YSO disks and dense cores, respectively (Ménard & Duchêne 2004). The black dotted line is the function expected for a randomly oriented sample.
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.
