Title: Internal Structure of Massive Star-forming Clumps

Abstract: Previous observations have revealed that massive dense clumps are the main locations where OB star-formation is taking place. Understanding massive clump evolution will yield critical constraints for constructing a massive star-formation scenario. In this talk, I will present the statistical study of clump-scale fragmentation based on submillimeter continuum observations, and briefly introduce the following spectroscopic work on dissecting the gas temperature and density profile over the course of clump evolution.
