Abstract

We present the results of a 1.3 mm continuum survey of cold IRAS sources known to be associated with star formation regions. A dozen sources were detected, eleven of which we mapped. By combining our observations with those of other observers and IRAS, we are able to study the properties of the extended dust envelopes in which these IR sources are embedded.
