Bibliographic Code:


Six of 24 pre-main sequence stars surveyed with the VLA have been found to emit at 4.885 GHz. Radio maps of the six stars, V410 Tau, T Tau, DG Tau, LkH-alpha 101, L1551 IRS5, and Z CMa, show unresolved cores of less than 0.5 arcsec in most cases, along with 1-2 arcsec, faint, extended structures. Mass loss rates, derived under the assumption of uniform spherical winds, range from approximately 3 x 10 to the -7th to about 4 x 10 to the -5th solar masses/year. Because the flows are highly anisotropic, however, these estimates are to be taken only as likely upper limits.
