J/A+A/511/L10   Abundances and space velocities of 94 stars   (Nissen+, 2010)

Two distinct halo populations in the solar neighborhood. Evidence from stellar abundance ratios and kinematics. Nissen P.E., Schuster W.J. <Astron. Astrophys. 511, L10 (2010)> =2010A&A...511L..10N
ADC_Keywords: Stars, nearby ; Abundances ; Space velocities Keywords: stars: abundances - stars: kinematics - Galaxy: halo - Galaxy: formation Abstract: Precise abundance ratios are determined for 94 dwarf stars with 5200<Teff<6300K, -1.6<[Fe/H]←0.4, and distances D≲335pc. Most of them have halo kinematics, but 16 thick-disk stars are included. Equivalent widths of atomic lines are measured from VLT/UVES and NOT/FIES spectra with resolutions R∼55000 and R∼40000, respectively. An LTE abundance analysis based on MARCS models is applied to derive precise differential abundance ratios of Na, Mg, Si, Ca, Ti, Cr, and Ni with respect to Fe. Description: Atmospheric parameters, abundance ratios, and space velocities are given for halo and thick-disk stars observed with the ESO VLT/UVES and NOT/FIES spectrographs at high resolution.
