Received ; accepted – 3 – ABSTRACT We have obtained near-infrared spectra covering the Ca II triplet lines for a large number of stars associated with 16 SMC clusters using the VLT + FORS2. These data compose the largest available sample of SMC clusters with spectro-scopically derived abundances and velocities. Our clusters span a wide range of ages and provide good areal coverage of the galaxy. Cluster members are selected using a combination of their positions relative to the cluster center… CONTINUE READING
