J/A+A/396/503       Spectra of blue compact galaxies         (Kong+, 2002)

Spectroscopic study of blue compact galaxies. II. Spectral analysis and correlations. Kong X., Cheng F.Z., Weiss A., Charlot S. <Astron. Astrophys. 396, 503 (2002)> =2002A&A...396..503K
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, spectra Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: Seyfert - galaxies: general - galaxies: stellar content Abstract: This is the second paper in a series studying the star formation rates, stellar components, metallicities, and star formation histories and evolution of a sample of blue compact galaxies. We analyzed spectral properties of 97 blue compact galaxies, obtained with the Beijing Astronomical Observatory (China) 2.16m telescope, with spectral range 3580Å-7400Å. We classify the spectra according to their emission lines: 13 of the total 97 BCG sample are non-emission line galaxies (non-ELGs); 10 have AGN-like emission (AGNs), and 74 of them are star-forming galaxies (SFGs). Emission line fluxes and equivalent widths, continuum fluxes, the 4000A Balmer break index and equivalent widths of absorption lines are measured from the spectra.

Note on table1.dat and table2.dat: There are 74 star-forming BCG (SFG) in our sample, but the spectrum of I Zw207 has not 3600-4100Å, and the spectrum of IIZw67 has no Hβ emission line. Note on table3.dat: V II Zw 631 has not Hβ lines, and is not included in table3.
