Young Star Clusters: Metallicity Tracers in External Galaxies

  • Peter Anders (a1), Uta Fritze – v. Alvensleben (a1) and Richard de Grijs (a2)

Abstract

Star cluster formation is a major mode of star formation in the extreme conditions of interacting galaxies and violent star bursts. These newly-formed clusters are built from recycled gas, pre-enriched to various levels within the interacting galaxies. Hence, star clusters of different ages represent a fossil record of the chemical enrichment history of their host galaxy, as well as of the host galaxy’s violent star formation history. We present a new set of evolutionary synthesis models of our GALEV code, specifically developed to include the gaseous emission of presently forming star clusters, and a new tool to analyze multi-color observations with our models. First results for newly-born clusters in the dwarf star-burst galaxy NGC 1569 are presented.
