The Structure of the Interstellar Medium and Star Formation in the Magellanic Clouds

  • Michael A. Dopita (a1)

Abstract

The Magellanic Clouds, by their proximity, offer a unique opportunity to study the detailed processes of star formation in a galactic context. This Review examines the dynamic and self-limiting feedback between star formation and the interstellar medium (ISM) in these galaxies. Energetic processes associated with star formation are responsible for pressurising the ISM, for maintaining the multi-phase structure of this medium and for ejecting copious quantities of both hot and cool gas to large heights above the galactic mid-plane. This circulation process determines the control of the star-formation rate.
