WISE circumstellar discs in the young Sco-Cen association
We present an analysis of the WISE photometric data for 829 stars in the Sco-Cen OB2 association, using thelatest high-mass membership probabilities. We detect infrared excesses associated with 135 BAF-type stars, 99 ofwhich are secure Sco-Cen members. There is a clear increase in excess fraction with membership probability, which can be fitted linearly.We infer that 41 ± 5 per cent of Sco-Cen OB2 BAF stars have excesses, while the field star excess fraction is consistent with zero. This is the...[Show more]
