ABSTRACT

The data of 8852 and 2927 variable stars detected by the OGLE survey in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds are presented. They are cross-identified with the SIRIUS JHK survey data, and their infrared properties are discussed. Variable red giants are well separated on the period–(JK) plane, suggesting that it could be a good tool to distinguish their pulsation mode and type.
