Part II: Compared Internal Structure of Nearby Molecular Clouds
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 237)


We conclude that chemical models of nearby molecular clouds can give some detail about local interstellar conditions. However, the models are currently incomplete in that surface processes, leading either to accretion or to reaction, and involving some mantle limitation process, require to be included.
