J/A+A/423/867   Abundances of distant luminous infrared galaxies  (Liang+, 2004)

The Luminosity-Metallicity relation of distant luminous infrared galaxies. Liang Y.C., Hammer F., Flores H., Elbaz D., Marcillac D., Cesarsky C.J. <Astron. Astrophys., 423, 867-880 (2004)> =2004A&A...423..867L
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, IR ; Galaxies, spectra ; Abundances, peculiar Keywords: galaxies: abundances - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: ISM - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: spiral - galaxies: starburst Abstract: One hundred and five 15µm-selected objects in three ISO (Infrared Space Observatory) deep survey fields (CFRS 3h, UDSR and UDSF) are studied on the basis of their high-quality optical spectra with resolution R>1000 from VLT/FORS2. ∼92 objects (88%) have secure redshifts, ranging from 0 to 1.16 with a median value of zmed=0.587. Description: Our sample galaxies were selected from three ISO deep survey fields: CFRS 3, Ultra-Deep-Survey-Rosat (UDSR) and Ultra-Deep-Survey-FIRBACK (UDSF) field. The CFRS was carried out in five moderate to high galactic latitude (|b|>45°) survey fields of area 10'x10' chosen to match the field of view of the MOS multiobject spectrograph on the 3.6m CFHT. The UDSR field refers to the Marano field centered at 03:15:09-55:13:57 (J2000), which is a deep ROSAT observation field. FIRBACK is a deep survey conducted with the ISOPHOT instrument aboard the ISO at an effective wavelength of 175µm. File Summary:

Note on table6.dat: The uncertainties of the line ratios and metallicity are from the uncertainties of extinction and emission line flux measurements. The typical 30% uncertainty of SFRIR will result in a typical 0.03dex discrepancy on the derived values. Note on table7.dat: The uncertainties of the line ratios and metallicity are from the uncertainties of extinction and emission line flux measurements.
