We present a method to map the total intrinsic reddening of a foreground extinguishing medium via the analysis of spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of background galaxies. In this pilot study, we implement this technique in two distinct regions of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) – the bar and the southern outskirts – using a combination of optical and near-infrared ugrizYJKs broad-band imaging. We adopt the lephare χ2-minimization SED-fitting routine and various samples of galaxies and/or… 

The intrinsic reddening of the Magellanic Clouds as traced by background galaxies – II. The Small Magellanic Cloud

We present a map of the total intrinsic reddening across ≃34 deg2 of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) derived using optical (ugriz) and near-infrared (IR; YJKs) spectral energy distributions (SEDs)

The Second Data Release of the Survey of the MAgellanic Stellar History (SMASH)

The Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC) are the largest satellite galaxies of the Milky Way and close enough to allow for a detailed exploration of their structure and formation history.

The VMC survey – XLI. Stellar proper motions within the Small Magellanic Cloud

We used data from the near-infrared Visible and Infrared Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) survey of the Magellanic Cloud system (VMC) to measure proper motions (PMs) of stars within the Small

Background galaxies as reddening probes throughout the Magellanic Clouds

We study the spectral properties in the range 3600 A-6800 A of the nuclear region of galaxies behind the Magellanic Clouds. The radial velocities clarified the nature of the objects as background

NEW OPTICAL REDDENING MAPS OF THE LARGE AND SMALL MAGELLANIC CLOUDS

We present new reddening maps of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) based on the data of the third phase of the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE III). We

The goal of this paper is to present the results of a preliminary analysis of the extended infrared (IR) emission by dust in the interstellar medium (ISM) of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). We

EXTINCTION MAP OF THE SMALL MAGELLANIC CLOUD BASED ON THE SIRIUS AND 6X 2MASS POINT SOURCE CATALOGS

In this paper, we present the first extinction map of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) constructed using the color excess at near-infrared wavelengths. Using a new technique named “X percentile

The VMC survey. VII. Reddening map of the 30 Doradus field and the structure of the cold interstellar medium

Context: The details of how galaxies have evolved are imprinted in their star formation history, chemical enrichment and morpho-kinematic structure. Parameters behind these can be measured by

THE BLUE TIP OF THE STELLAR LOCUS: MEASURING REDDENING WITH THE SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY

We present measurements of reddening due to dust using the colors of stars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We measure the color of main-sequence turnoff stars by finding the “blue tip” of the

We report the spectroscopic confirmation of 29 new, 12 plausible, and three previously known quasars behind the central ∼1.5 deg2 region of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). These were identified in

Hubble Space Telescope Photometry of Clusters of Galaxies behind the Dwarf Irregular Galaxies DDO 216 and IC 1613 and the Small Magellanic Cloud

We have measured the integrated colors of galaxies in clusters located behind the dwarf irregular galaxies DDO 216 (Pegasus) and IC 1613 and a position in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) near the
