Contents Motivation – why study outflows from Young Stellar Objects Review of Outflow Energetics Observational summary: Outflows from Mid- to Early-B (Proto)stars Outflows from young O Stars Impact of Luminosity on Outflows Impact of Mass-loading and Disk Turbulence on Outflows Summary
Motivation Outflow & infall dynamics affect: Energy input & turbulent support of molecular clouds Dissipation of molecular clouds Final mass of the central star Disk (and planet) evolution Outflows provide a fossil record of mass-loss history of a protostar (or protostellar cluster). Outflow orientation establishes that a velocity gradient in circumstellar material (e.g. masers, dense gase) is due to a disk. Why massive protostellar outflows may differ from lower-mass flows: OB stars usually form in clusters expect dynamical interactions Expect massive YSO to evolve to ZAMS more rapidly: O stars: tevolve ~ few x 104 yrs, G star: tevolve ~ few x 107 yrs OB stars reach ZAMS while still embedded increased radiation pressure may affect outflow dynamics
. . (Yorke 2003) Kelvin-Helmholtz time scale (time to reach ZAMS): tKH= GM 2/RL Accretion time scale: tacc = M* /Macc For M* ~ 8 M tacc = tKH And for M* > 8 M the star reaches the ZAMS while still accreting – ionizing radiation affects outflow & infall Massive vs Low-Mass Protostars . Ae

Isolated and cluster formation possible. Disk linked accretion & outflow may be similar to low mass protostars, e.g., x-winds (Shu et al. 2000) & disk winds (Konigl & Pudritz 2000). . ..
. Formation Mechanisms Mergers destroy accretion disks around lower mass components and disrupt their outflows. Resulting massive star will likely have rotating circumstellar material but accretion is not a necessary criteria for formation. Coalescence: coalescence of stars/protostars with masses below the critical value of 8 M (Bonnell & Bate 2002). Radiation pressure no longer a problem. Requires cluster formation only.
. . . Ef Pf Mf LZAMS Lacc Outflow Energetics . • Independent studies establish correlations like M ~ Lbol0.6 for: • The bipolar molecular outflow rate • The mass accretion rate • The ionized mass outflow rate • For Lbol = 0.3 to 105 Lsun strong link between accretion & outflow for most Lbol • e.g. Cabrit & Bertout 1992, Shepherd & Churchwell 1996, Henning et al. 2000

Mechanical force,Pf vs Lbolcorrelation holds Mf vs Lbol correlation may be an upper limit May be a function of the entrainment efficiency? Mout ~ 0.1 Mcore0.8(derived from 1.2 mm dust emission) Dust emission increases with protostar age. (see also Sarceno et al. 1996, Chandler & Richer 2000, Richer et al. 2000) .
CO Outflows from low and high mass stars show a mass-velocity (MV) relation in the form of a power law dM(v)/dv ~ vg with g ranging from -1 to -8; g steepens with age and energy in the flow (e.g. Rodriguez et al. 1982; Lada & Fich 1996; Shepherd et al. 1998; Richer et al. 2000; Beuther et al. 2002). A similar relation of H2 Flux-velocity also exists with g between -1.8 and -2.6 for low and high mass outflows (Salas & Cruz-Gonzalez 2002): Outflow Energetics H2Vbreak versus outflow length, l, correlation: g steepens and Vbreak increases for older flows - similar to molecular flows. Vbreak differs but overlap where g(H2 ) ~ g(CO) association between CO & H2 in molecular outflows. Vbreak ~ l 0.4 g ~ l 0.08
. . Jet Knot Spacing: T Tauri stars: Knot spacing = 500-1000 AU, vjet ~ 300 km/s timescale = 10-20 yrs HH 80-81: Knot spacing = 2000-3000 AU, vjet ~ 500-1400 km/s timescale = 10-30 yrs Cautionary note: HH 30 knots are ejected every few years and knots appear to merge after a few years. (Stapelfeld et al. in prep). Thus, knot spacing at large distances from the central source may be more a function of the evolution of the jet structure and excitation rather than an intrinsic property of the star/disk system. Ionized wind mass loss rates: Determined from optical lines [SII] & [OI] for T Tauri stars and radio emission for massive protostars up to early B spectral type. Ionized Jet Energetics Cabrit (2002), Rodriguez et al. (1994), Marti et al. (1995), Shepherd & Kurtz (1999)
Ionization fraction in jets: Collimated jets from low-mass sources appear to be mostly neutral (e.g. Bacciotti & Eisloffel 1999; Bacciotti, Eisloffel, & Ray 1999; Lavalley-Fouquet, Cabrit, & Dougados 2000). Ionization fraction xe ~ 0.01 to 0.1 within 50 AU from source. Molecular jets from low-mass Class 0 sources have sufficient momentum to drive molecular flows (e.g. Richer et al. 1989; Bachiller et al. 1991; and discussion in Cabrit 2002) The SiO jet from one early B protostar, IRAS 20126, may also have adequate momentum to power the larger-scale CO flow but uncertainties in assumed SiO abundance makes this difficult to prove (Cesaroni et al. 1999; Shepherd et al. 2000): SiO: Pwind ~ 2 x 10-1 2 x 10 -9 Msun km/s/yr [SiO/H2] CO: Pwind ~ 6 x 10-3 Msun km/s/yr Ionized Jet Energetics . .

Expect high luminosity of massive protostars to play an important role in • Dynamical Evolution • Outflow (& disk) thermal structure and morphology • Review by Konigl (1999) summarizes the issues: • Enhanced field-matter coupling near disk surface due to UV radiation may cause higher accretion rates and mass outflow rates (e.g. Pudritz 1985). • Disk photo-evaporation could create a low-velocity disk outflow (e.g. Hollenbach et al. 1994; Yorke & Welz 1996). • Radiation pressure higher for dusty gas (e.g. Wolfire & Cassinelli 1987), may contribute to flow acceleration and also lead to the ‘opening up’ of the outflow streamlines (e.g. Konigl & Kartje 1994). • Expect a strong, radiatively driven stellar wind (although momentum factor of 10-100 too low to power observed molecular outflow). • Consider an example of how radiatively-driven stellar winds could potentially affect outflow dynamics (Yorke & Sonnhalter 2002): • Frequency-dependent opacity calculations – 30Msun and 60Msun molecular cores which collapse to produce a protostar (M* ~ 30Msun& 34Msun, respectively) with disk and radiatively-induced outflow.

X-winds: Mass loading impact on outflows . Shu et al. (1994) – ‘X-point’ (outflow launching point) ~ 5 R* in a typical T Tauri star. Hartmann & Kenyon (1996) – FU Ori stars in outburst have no hot UV continuum: magnetospheric accretion columns have been crushed onto stellar surface. Even late B stars have high enough accretion rate to crush accretion columns. Massive star outflows can not be due to X-winds from truncated disks. X-wind from rapidly rotating protostar (Shu et al. 1998) or pure disk-wind (Konigl & Pudritz 2001).
. • Ouyed & Pudritz (1999) – Magnetized Disk-Wind Simulations: For Mw ~ 10-8 Msun yr -1, disturbances appear to grow producing instabilities & shocks – outflows become episodic. As Mw increase 3 orders of magnitude, jet behavior goes from episodic to steady ejection. Ideal MHD assumed: all solutions re-collimate. • Anderson, Li, Krasnopolsky & Blandford (POSTER D17) – How mass loading from the disk affects structure and dynamics of the wind. Mw = 3 x 10 -5 to 3 x 10 -10 Msun yr -1Degree of collimation increases with mass loading up to ~10 -5 Msun yr -1. • Re-collimation of the wind expected for ideal MHD where trecomb >> tdynamical and plasma and B fields are frozen-in. But, ideal MHD assumptions break down as: • Plasma T and r increase • Turbulence in the disk or wind increases • B field decreases • Not clear what the implications are, will this affect outflow? Mass loading impact on outflows . . Expected for outflows & disks associated with luminous YSOs.
Gravitational instabilities induce spiral density waves; expected to be prevalent if Mdisk > 0.3 M*, (Laughlin & Bodenheimer 1994). Toomre Q stability parameter (Yorke, Bodenheimer & Laughlin 1995): Q = csW / p GS = 56 (M*/Msun)1/2 (Rd /AU) -3/2 (Td /100K)1/2 (S /103 g cm -3) Where cs = local sound speed, W = epicycle frequency of disk, S = disk surface density, Rd = disk radius & Td = disk temperature. For Q < 1 disk susceptible to local gravitational instability and axisymmertric fragmentation. Q = 1-2 disk susceptible to gravito-turbulence (Gammie 2001): Could be a significant angular momentum transport. Early B (proto)stars appear to have Md /M* > 0.3 and can be as high as 1-10. Example: Md ~ 3 Msun , M* ~ 8 MsunAssume Td = 100 K & Rd = 70 AU, then Q ~ 0.5 disk locally unstable, higher angular momentum transport through disk? Will the outflow be less efficient for a given Macc ? Disk turbulence - impact on outflows . . TALK: Matzner – Low-mass star formation: initial conditions and disk instabilities.

Deflected Infall? Moutflow ~ few x M* for T Tauri stars Moutflow >> M* for OB protostars. Churchwell (1999) points out that entrainment & swept-up mass do not appear to be able to account for large observed outflow masses. Circulation models: Moutflow > M* easy (Richer et al. 2000). Most infalling material diverted magnetically at large radii into slow-moving outflow along the polar direction, infall proceeds along the equitorial plane (Fiege & Henriksen 1996: Lery, Henriksen, Fiege 1999; Aburihan et al 2001).
Summary • Mid- to early-B protostars and late O protostars have accretion disks & outflows that can be well-collimated. • Once UCHII region forms, associated ionized outflows have strong wide-angle winds. Jet component not detected? Must be verified. • - This would be unlike low-mass flows where there is evidence for a 2-component wind (jet+wide-angle) in older sources (e.g. Arce & Goodman 2002; Solf 2000). • Mid to early O stars: Outflows appear to be poorly collimated. Explosive events coalescence a possibility in some cases. • Expect changes in outflow dynamics due to increased: • - Luminosity (accretion & stellar) • - Mass-loading onto the wind • - Disk turbulence
