Bibliographic Code:


A 4.5 deg x 6.5 deg area of the Rho Ophiuchus molecular complex has been mapped in J = 1-0 (C-13)O with a 2.4 arcmin beam. The spatial distribution of (C-13)O, the distribution of clumps according to size, mass, density, and kinetic temperature are described. The distribution of material in the cloud is compared with the magnetic field distribution and with a shocked cloud model. Evidence supporting the role of shock in the cloud is found in the cloud morphology.
