I will explore how star formation, spiral structure, perturbations and remnants from dwarf galaxies, and the Galactic bar cause substructure in local stellar velocity distributions.
I will discuss challenges in better measuring the shape and stellar distribution of the Milky Way, understanding dynamical processes in the disk and its formation and past evolution.
