ADC_Keywords: Stars, dwarfs ; Abundances Keywords: stars: fundamental parameters - stars: abundances - Galaxy: disk - Galaxy: formation - Galaxy: abundances - Galaxy: kinematics and dynamics Description: From a detailed elemental abundance analysis of 102 F and G dwarf stars we present abundance trends in the Galactic thin and thick disks for 14 elements (O, Na, Mg, Al, Si, Ca, Ti, Cr, Fe, Ni, Zn, Y, Ba, and Eu). Stellar parameters and elemental abundances (except for Y, Ba and Eu) for 66 of the 102 stars were presented in our previous studies (Bensby et al. 2003, J/A+A/410/527, 2004, J/A+A/415/155). The 36 stars that are new in this study extend and confirm our previous results and allow us to draw further conclusions regarding abundance trends. The s-process elements Y and Ba, and the r-element Eu have also been considered here for the whole sample for the first time. To make it easier to gather the elemental abundances for all 102 stars we have included the abundance data from Bensby et al. (2003, Cat. J/A+A/410/527) and from Bensby et al. (2004, Cat. J/A+A/415/155) in table9.dat File Summary:

Note (1): Instrument is coded as follows: S = SOFIN spectrograph on Nordic Optical Telescope F = FEROS spectrograph on ESO-2.2m telescope U = UVES spectrograph on VLT Kueyen Note (2): Apart from the SOFIN stars, the indications in column "Inst" do generally not apply to this column. Most of the FEROS stars have been observed with the CES spectrograph on the ESO-3.6m telescope from which spectra the forbidden oxygen abundances were determined (see Bensby et al., 2004, Cat. J/A+A/415/155)
Global notes: Note (G1): Membership as follows: 1 = Thin disk star 2 = Thick disk star 3 = "Transition object"-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Acknowledgements: Thomas Bensby, tbensby(at)
