Abstract

The first ever systematic search for infrared star clusters in the entire galactic plane using 2MASS. About 500 very good candidates for previously unknown star clusters were discovered, roughly doubling the known total. The distribution on the sky was used to prove that the molecular clouds form groups, rather than individual star clusters. (Impact Factor: 5.325)
