Abstract: We have observed 51 high-mass star-forming cores associated with water masers at 350 micron. The spectral energy distributions (SEDs) and dust continuum normalized radial intensity profiles were modeled for 28 sources using a one-dimensional dust radiative transfer code assuming a power law density distribution in the envelope n = n0 (r/r0)-p. The best fit density power law exponent, p, ranged from 1.0 to 2.5 with a mean value of p = 1.72. We determined the dust masses for the modeled cores and found a mean mass of 209 Msun.
