J/AJ/130/2140    Abundances and velocities in globular clusters  (Pritzl+, 2005)

A comparison of elemental abundance ratios in globular clusters, field stars, and dwarf spheroidal galaxies. Pritzl B.J., Venn K.A., Irwin M. <Astron. J., 130, 2140-2165 (2005)> =2005AJ....130.2140P
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Abundances Keywords: globular clusters: general - stars: abundances Abstract: We have compiled a sample of globular clusters with high-quality stellar abundances from the literature to compare to the chemistries of stars in the Galaxy and in dwarf spheroidal galaxies. Of the 45 globular clusters examined, 29 also have kinematic information. Most of the globular clusters belong to the Galactic halo; however, a significant number have disk kinematics or belong to the bulge. File Summary:
