Abstract: A distinguished kind of molecular clouds, the infrared dark clouds (hereafter IRDCs), are believed to be relevant for describing the initial conditions for high-mass star formation. They are characterized by their lack of detectable emission in the mid-infrared: they appear as a dark silhouette against the corresponding mid-infrared background. IRDCs were first recognized in images from the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO, Egan et al. 1998) and the Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX, Perault et al. 1996)
