J/A+A/615/A151     Lithium abundances in 714 F and G dwarf stars (Bensby+, 2018)

Exploring the production and depletion of lithium in the Milky Way stellar disk. Bensby T., Lind K. <Astron. Astrophys. 615, A151 (2018)> =2018A&A...615A.151B (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Milky Way ; Stars, G-type ; Abundances Keywords: Galaxy: disk - Galaxy: formation - Galaxy: evolution - stars: abundances - stars: fundamental parameters Abstract: We perform a detailed analysis of Li in 714 nearby dwarf stars. Li abundances were determined through spectral line synthesis of the Li feature at 670.8 nm. The stellar sample traces the evolution of the Galactic thin and thick disks in the solar neighbourhood, and is the same as previously analysed by Bensby et al. (2014, Cat. J/A+A/562/A71) where stellar parameters and ages were taken from. The same sample was also used in Battistini & Bensby (2015, Cat. J/A+A/577/A9, 2016, Cat. J/A+A/586/A49) wherein abundances for odd iron-peak elements and r- and s-process elements can be found. Description: For each star we give the NLTE corrected Li abundance, the applied NLTE correction, and uncertainties in the form of NLTE corrected Li abundances based on the same analysis but increasing and decreasing the effective temperatures with their uncertainties. 394 stars have "good" Li abundances (flag=0 in Flag column), and 121 stars have only upper Li upper limits (flag=1 in Flag column).
