Abstract:

The detection of H2O maser emission is reported from three new galactic regions a point 0.9 min NE of T Tauri, and towards the HII regions G29.9-0.0 and G0.55-0.85. The T Tauri water source is not coincident with any known optical object comparison of the H2O and CO observations of this region suggests the presence of an embedded protostellar region in the molecular cloud. These sources and those in S140-IR and Mon R2 were monitored for time variations and found that all sources except T Tauri are time-variable on the scale of a month. A model for the varying component of Mon R2 is proposed.
