Abstract

Our goal is to evaluate the role of triggering effects on the star formation and early stellar evolution by presenting a statistically large sample of cloud and low-mass YSO data. We conducted large area surveys (ranging from 400 square-degree to 10800 square-degree) in optical, NIR and FIR. The distribution of the ISM and low-mass YSOs were surveyed. A relative excess was found statistically in the number of dense and cold core bearing clouds and low mass YSOs in the direction of the FIR loop shells indicating a possible excess in their formation.
