J/AJ/131/431          Abundances of Galactic G dwarfs            (Brewer+, 2006)

A comparison of the chemical evolutionary histories of the galactic thin disk and thick disk stellar populations. Brewer M.-M, Carney B.W. <Astron. J. 131, 431 (2006)> =2006AJ....131..431B
ADC_Keywords: Abundances ; Photometry, uvby, beta ; Radial velocities ; Space velocities ; Stars, dwarfs Keywords: disk - Galaxy: evolution - stars: abundances Abstract: We have studied 23 long-lived G dwarfs that belong to the thin disk and thick disk stellar populations. The stellar data and analyses are identical, reducing the chances for systematic errors in the comparisons of the chemical abundance patterns in the two populations. Abundances have been derived for 24 elements: O, Na, Mg, Al, Si, Ca, Ti, Sc, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Sr, Y, Zr, Ba, La, Ce, Nd, and Eu. Description: We obtained high-resolution echelle spectra for each star. The majority of the data was taken with the echelle spectrograph on the 4m Mayall Telescope at Kitt Peak. To obtain the necessary large wavelength range, each star was observed with two different setups, one for the red end of the spectrum and one for the blue end. Higher resolution (R=60,000) spectra were also acquired by I. Ivans using the 2.7m Harlan J. Smith Telescope at McDonald Observatory using the 2d-coude echelle. File Summary:

Note (1): External error derived from the individual velocities. Note (2): Internal error estimated from the ratio of the height of the peak in the power spectrum to the mean noise level. Note (3): Values above 1.5 generally indicate velocity variability. Note (4): Note on P(chi2), defined as follows: a = A single-lined spectroscopic binary, with P=1402days. b = A possible single-lined spectroscopic binary, with an undetermined orbital period. c = A single-lined spectroscopic binary, with P=742days. d = A double-lined spectroscopic binary, with P=23.58days. e = A single-lined spectroscopic binary, with an undetermined but long orbital period.
