J/AJ/130/1111     Elemental abundances of field red giants       (Carney+, 2005)

Elemental abundance ratios in stars of the outer galactic disk. II. Field red giants. Carney B.W., Yong D., De Almeida M.L.T., Seitzer P. <Astron. J., 130, 1111-1126 (2005)> =2005AJ....130.1111C
ADC_Keywords: Abundances ; Photometry ; Stars, giant ; Radial velocities Keywords: Galaxy: abundances - Galaxy: disk Abstract: We summarize a selection process to identify red giants in the direction of the southern warp of the Galactic disk, employing VIC photometry and multi-object spectroscopy. Description: We observed warp field 1a with the University of Michigan's Curtis Schmidt telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory using a 1024x1024 Thompson CCD with an image scale of 1.835"/pix and a field of view of 31'x31'. The 24-fiber multiobject Argus echelle spectrograph was used at the prime focus of the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory 4.0m Blanco Telescope in March of 1994. Single-order spectra centered on the Mg b triplet (∼5200Å) were obtained for 209 of the stars that appear to be field red giants. File Summary:
