[32.04] The Radio Continuum from Classical T Tauri Stars

S.M. White, L.G. Mundy and A.W. Grossman (Department of Astronomy, University of Maryland)

We have carried out a survey of radio continuum emission from the classical T Tauri stars in the Taurus and Ophiuchus star-forming clouds not previously observed with the Very Large Array. The detection rate is surprisingly low. We combine our results with those of other surveys in order to analyze the correlation of radio continuum luminosity with other properties of T Tauri stars, and discuss the nature of the radio continuum and its relationship to the winds of these stars.
