  • Dust radiative transfer models are presented for all 374 AGB stars candidates in one of the fields observed by the new VISTA survey of the Magellanic Clouds (VMC). Mass-loss rates, luminosities and a classification of C- and O-rich stars are derived by fitting the models to the spectral energy distribution obtained by combining VMC data with existing optical, near-, and mid-infrared photometry. This exploratory study shows that our method provides reliable mass-loss rates, luminosities and… CONTINUE READING
