The proceedings of the Second European Meeting on "New Aspects of MagellanicCloud Research" review the most recent progress in the study of the LMC and SMC. The activities within the ground-based ESO key programme "Coordinated Investigations of Selected Regions in the Magellanic Clouds", as well as new exciting observations from space missions (ROSAT, IUE, ISO, IRAS) result in a more profound insightinto the structure, kinematics, populations (stars, clusters, interstellar medium), and the chemical composition and evolution of the Magellanic Cloud system. The book addresses researchers and graduate students in astrophysics.
This volume gives an almost exhaustive survey of recent research from various ESO projects and presents the known satellite observations of the Magellanic Clouds. It deals with their structure and kinematics, their stellar population, interstellar medium and clusters, and their chemical composition.
