Abstract / Description:We combined optical Hubble Space Telescope ACS images with mid-infrared Spitzer data of the two young star clusters NGC346 and NGC602 in the Small Magellanic Cloud, to study how local and global conditions may affect the process of star formation. We found that, while general conditions such as metallicity, or the mass or morphological type of the parent galaxy do not strongly affect the process of star formation, local conditions such as the gas and stellar density can affect both how star formation occurs and propagates, and also the evolution of a star cluster from early times.
