Abstract The 100- and 160-micron continuum emission from cool dust in the interacting gas-rich pair of galaxies, NGC 4490 and NGC 4485, was mapped. Visual continuum and H-alpha images of the pair were obtained. The state of the interstellar medium and the rate and efficiency of star formation are investigated. 49 refs.
