J/A+A/521/A40    Stroemgren photometry of Milky Way stars    (Arnadottir+, 2010)

The ability of intermediate-band Stroemgren photometry to correctly identify dwarf, subgiant, and giant stars and provide stellar metallicities and surface gravities Arnadottir A.S., Feltzing S., Lundstroem I. <Astron. Astrophys. 521, A40 (2010)> =2010A&A...521A..40A

Given the necessity of generalisation in the determination of, e.g., stellar parameters when tens and hundred of thousands of stars are considered it remains important to provide independent, detailed studies to verify the methods used in the surveys. Description: We evaluate available metallicity calibrations based on Stroemgren uvby photometry for dwarf stars using a catalogue of stars with both uvby photometry and spectroscopically determined iron abundances ([Fe/H]). The catalogue was created for this project. Using this catalogue, we also evaluate available calibrations that determine logg. A larger catalogue, in which metallicity is determined directly from uvby photometry, is used to trace metallicity-dependent standard sequences for dwarf stars. We also perform comparisons, for both dwarf and giant stars, of metallicities derived from ugriz photometry with metallicities derived from Stroemgren photometry. File Summary:
