Abstract: Properties of star clusters and the thickness of the galactic disk, especially their variation with galactocentric distance, provide tests for the physical conditions in different parts of a galaxy. We discuss especially the radial variation of the dissolution times of open clusters, and the radial variation of the disk thickness under various circumstances.
