Owing to the drastic progress in infrared and radio observations of molecular cloud cores, the scenario of starformation seems to have been almost completed. However, the study of dark clouds as a whole, which is a stage of the starformation drama, is observationally insufficient. In order to understand the environment of a starforming region, it is important to study the large scale structures of dark clouds. And that gives the information about formation and destruction mechanism of dark clouds.
