Details on Acronym: SCAMP SCAMP (SCUBA Massive Precluster Survey)
N: about 300
Object:(smm) (SIMBAD class: Radio(sub-mm) = sub-millimetric source)
Note:In preparation. Survey project is aimed at finding massive precluster candidates using wide-area mapping with the SCUBA sub-mm bolometer camera. As part of the survey we completed 10x10 arcmin maps of 32 massive star-forming regions signposted by UC HII regions and have discovered upwards of 200 unknown sub-mm cores. A number of these show no emission in the mid-IR and are hence cold, massive candidate progenitors of massive stellar clusters. The proposed designation would refer to all the sub-mm cores detected in the survey. More information on the survey can be found at: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2005dmu..conf..425TAuth.:THOMPSON M.
Originof the Acronym: p = Pre-registered to IAU Comm.5
