To achieve this objective, it is necessary to obtain the abundances of Th and Eu through spectral synthesis, and to perform the synthesis it is necessary to know the atmospheric parameters and chemical abundances of contaminating elements. Description: The file table6 contains all the equivalent widths of lines used for atmospheric parameters and abundance determinations of contaminating elements. Some lines have not been effectively used in some stars; these have equivalent widths equal to 0.00 in the file. All equivalent widths are presented in milli-Angstroems. Observations with the ESO 1.52 m telescope were performed by the authors in two runs, in March and August, 2001. All obtained FEROS spectra have high nominal resolving power (R=48 000), signal-to-noise ratio (S/N≥300 in the visible) and coverage (3500 to 9200Å spread over 39 echelle orders). File Summary:
