Superbubbles in the Magellanic Clouds (Review)
Superbubbles that result from the stellar winds and supernovae of
OB associations probably play a fundamental role in
the structure and energetics of the ISM in
star-forming galaxies. Their influence may also dominate the
relationship between the different interstellar gas
phases. How do superbubbles form and evolve? How do they affect the
local and global ISM? The Magellanic Clouds provide a superior
opportunity to study this shell-forming activity, since both
stellar content and gaseous structure can be examined in detail.
Here, the results of recent studies of superbubbles in the Magellanic
Clouds are reviewed.
