Abstract

We present submillimeter observations of dark clouds that are part of the Spitzer Legacy program "From Molecular Cores to Planet-Forming Disks" (c2d). We used the Submillimeter Common-User Bolometer Array to map the regions observed by Spitzer with the c2d program to create a census of dense molecular cores including data from the infrared to the submillimeter. In this paper we present the basic data from these observations: maps, fluxes, and source attributes. We also show data for an object just outside the Perseus cloud that was serendipitously observed in our program. We propose that this object is a newly discovered evolved protostar.
