Abstract / Description:We report the results of our observations of the S255IR area with the Submillimeter Array (SMA) at 1.3 mm in the very extended configuration and at 0.8 mm in the compact configuration as well as with the IRAM 30 m at 0.8 mm. The best achieved angular resolution is about 0.4 arcsec. The dust continuum emission and several tens of molecular spectral lines are observed. The majority of the lines is detected only toward the S255IR-SMA1 clump, which represents a rotating structure (probably a disk) around the young massive star. The achieved angular resolution is still insufficient to make any conclusions about the Keplerian or non-Keplerian character of the rotation. The temperature of the molecular gas reaches 130–180 K. The size of the clump is about 500 AU. The clump is strongly fragmented as follows from the low beam-filling factor. The mass of the hot gas is significantly lower than the mass of the central star. A strong DCN emission near the center of the hot core most probably indicates a presence of a relatively cold (≲80 K) and rather massive clump there. High-velocity emission is observed in the CO line as well as in lines of high-density tracers HCN, HCO+, CS and other molecules. The outflow morphology obtained from a combination of the SMA and IRAM 30 m data is significantly different from that derived from the SMA data alone. The CO emission detected with the SMA traces only one boundary of the outflow. The outflow is most probably driven by jet bow shocks created by episodic ejections from the center. We detected a dense high velocity clump associated apparently with one of the bow shocks. The outflow strongly affects the chemical composition of the surrounding medium.
