J/A+A/373/757       Lyman-Alpha Forest of 3 QSOs             (Kim+, 2001)

The Lyman-Alpha Forest at 1.5 < z < 4 Kim T.-S., Cristia S., D'Odorico S. <Astron. Astrophys. 373, 757 (2001)> =2001A&A...373..757K
ADC_Keywords: QSOs ; Redshifts ; Spectroscopy Keywords: cosmology: observations - quasars: absorption lines Description: The line tables, tablea1.dat, tablea2.dat and tablea3.dat, list the fitted line parameters from Voigt-profile fitting of the Lyman-alpha forest clouds: redshift, z, the Doppler parameter, b, and its density, N. The profile fitting was done with the program VPFIT. The three QSOs, HE0515-4414, J2233-606 and HE2217-2818 were taken with VLT/UVES with a resolution of 45,000 and S/N of 30-50 in the forest regions.
