Abstract (from CDS):

We present a study of ISOGAL sources in the ``intermediate'' galactic bulge (|l|<2°, |b|∼1°-4°), observed by ISOCAM at 7 and 15µm. In combination with near-infrared (I, J, Ks) data of DENIS survey, complemented by 2MASS data, we discuss the nature of the ISOGAL sources, their luminosities, the interstellar extinction and the mass-loss rates. A large fraction of the 1464 detected sources at 15µm are AGB stars above the RGB tip, a number of them show an excess in ([7]-[15])0 and (Ks-[15])0 colours, characteristic of mass-loss. The latter, especially (Ks-[15])0, provide estimates of the mass-loss rates and show their distribution in the range 10–8 to 10–5M/yr.
