J/BaltA/18/141  North America/Pelican red clump giants ugriJHK (Straizys+, 2009)

Extinctions and distances of dark clouds from ugriJHK photometry of red clump giants: the North America and Pelican nebulae complex. Straizys V., Laugalys V. <Baltic Astron., 18, 141-159 (2009)> =2009BaltA..18..141S
ADC_Keywords: H II regions ; Stars, giant ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: ISM: dust clouds: individual (LDN 935) - stars: fundamental parameters (classification, colors) - photometric systems: 2MASS, IPHAS, MegaCam, Vilnius Abstract: A possibility of applying 2MASS J, H, Ks, IPHAS r, i and Mega-Cam u, g photometry of red giants for determining distances to dark clouds is investigated. Red clump giants with a small admixture of G5-K1 and M2-M3 stars of the giant branch can be isolated and used in determining distances to separate clouds or spiral arms. Interstellar extinctions of background red giants can be also used for mapping dust surface density in the cloud. File Summary:
