Abstract: In this work, we have analysed the dust-reddening, ‘E(B-V)’, in the Taurus molecular cloud using the commonly and widely accepted all-sky reddening-maps. We have observed that the Schlegel et al. 1998 dust-map as well as Green et al. 2015 dust-map overestimate the reddening in the region and the Planck Collaboration et al. 2014 reddening data is the better candidate to model dust-distribution and thereby studying star-formation processes in the region.
Keywords: Dust-Reddening—Molecular Clouds.
