Caption: Figure 8.

The color map shows the number density of dust precursors (seeds) in polar coordinates (r, θ), prior to condensation. The white region is free of seeds, as the temperatures are too hot to sustain stable clusters along the course of the flow. The black lines in the figure represent the parabolic flow lines with various starting/launch radii on the accretion disk, r0.
