ALMA studies of the disk-jet-outflow connection

Abstract:

I will describe in this contribution recent results obtained with ALMA on the origin of the disk/jet/outflow connection in T Tauri stars. I will first present ALMA observations of the disk associated with the jet source Th 28, which question previous jet rotation measurements in this source and the implications drawn from them. I will then discuss ALMA observations of the disk and small scale CO outflow associated with the prototypical edge-on HH 30 source. The unprecedented angular resolution of this dataset brings new constraints on the origin of the CO outflows in young stars.
