[5.02] Investigating star formation in the Magellanic Clouds: An update

R. G. Probst (NOAO-CTIO), M. Rubio (Depto. Astronomia, U. de Chile)

We are continuing a program of broad and narrowband IR imaging and CO line observations in star forming regions of the Magellanic Clouds. Initial results for 30 Doradus are reported in Rubio et al. (AJ 116, 1708, 1998) and Rubio, Garay, and Probst (ESO Messenger #93, 38, 1998). Our overall goal is definition of the massive star content and formation processes in low metallicity environments (1/3 to 1/10 solar) for comparison with Galactic star forming regions. We present observations of N66, N88, N11, N158, and other fields; and further work in the 30 Dor field.
