Interstellar Extinction in External Galaxies

  • Edward L. Fitzpatrick (a1)

Abstract

In this paper I review the existing measurements of the wavelength dependence of interstellar extinction arising from dust situated outside the Milky Way galaxy. This paper emphasizes studies of extinction in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. I discuss the UV extinction properties, as well as the optical and near-IR properties as determined from ground-based photometry.
