Poster Contributions


Infrared spectra of the 4.67µm solid CO feature were obtained for YSOs in Taurus. A first attempt is made to analyse the likely composition of the CO ices. Column densities are derived from the spectra, and compared with the ones predicted for a low mass protostar. The strengths of the CO- and water-ice features towards those objects are compared.
