On some properties of the local galactic disk as determined by star clusters.

Strobel A.

The paper presents an analysis of the space distribution of optical (extinction) and chemical properties of interstellar matter and stars in the Galaxy as traced by star clusters. The observed large, of kpc size, and small - within cluster - inhomogeneities of these properties are connected with space clumpings in density distribution of matter.
