J/A+A/465/271       Oxygen abundances in nearby stars        (Ramirez+, 2007)

Oxygen abundances in nearby stars. Clues to the formation and evolution of the Galactic disk. Ramirez, I., Allende Prieto, C., Lambert, D.L. <Astron. Astrophys. 465, 271 (2007)> =2007A&A...465..271R
ADC_Keywords: Stars, nearby ; Radial velocities ; Space velocities ; Abundances Keywords: stars: abundances - stars: atmospheres - stars: fundamental parameters - Galaxy: disk Abstract: The abundances of iron and oxygen are homogeneously determined in a sample of 523 nearby (d<150pc) FGK disk and halo stars with metallicities in the range -1.5<[Fe/H]<0.5. Iron abundances were obtained from an LTE analysis of a large set of FeI and FeII lines with reliable atomic data. Oxygen abundances were inferred from a restricted non-LTE analysis of the 777nm OI triplet. We adopted the infrared flux method temperature scale and surface gravities based on Hipparcos trigonometric parallaxes. Description: We provide in Table 4 basic (HIP and HD numbers, V magnitude and parallax) and kinematic (radial velocities and heliocentric space velocity) data for our sample stars. The kinematic probabilities of being a thin-disk, thick-disk, and halo member are also given. Table 5 contains the line data used in our abundance computations as well as the equivalent widths of the lines measured in the solar spectrum. Stellar parameters and abundances are given in Table 6. Effective temperatures were derived using color calibrations based on the infrared flux method temperature scale while surface gravities were determined from the Hipparcos parallaxes and estimates of the stellar masses based on theoretical isochrones. We provide the mean abundance of iron determined from Fe I and Fe II lines separately and a mean [Fe/H] value obtained after applying our empirical re-scaling of the Fe I abundances. LTE and non-LTE oxygen abundances derived from the 777nm OI triplet are also given. The last three columns of Table 6, if available, provide our estimates of the stellar ages. File Summary:
