5. Conclusions

We have presented a 60 µm - 1.3 mm continuum study of ten Class I sources in the L1641 cloud. Our main findings are:
(i) for Class 0 and Class I sources, the use of the Hildebrand formula is a good way to obtain the circumstellar mass and [FORMULA], because a single temperature greybody reproduces well the observed continuum;
(ii) the exponent of the dust opacity law, [FORMULA], seems to increase with time, contributing to the evolution of the ([FORMULA] / [FORMULA]) ratio.

The possible evolution of [FORMULA] with time clearly needs further investigation, especially in the mid-IR and submillimetre ranges to search for possible change in dust properties.
