Complexity on small scales. III. Iron and α element abundances in the Carina dwarf spheroidal galaxy. Koch A., Grebel E.K., Gilmore G.F., Wyse R.F.G., Kleyna J.T., Harbeck D.R., Wilkinson M.I., Evans N.W. <Astron. J., 135, 1580-1597 (2008)> =2008AJ....135.1580K
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Stars, giant ; Equivalent widths Keywords: galaxies: abundances - galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: individual (Carina) - galaxies: stellar content - stars: abundances Abstract: We have obtained high-resolution spectroscopy of ten red giants in the Carina dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxy with the ultraviolet and visual echelle spectrograph at the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope in order to study the detailed chemical evolution of this Galactic satellite. Here we present the abundances of O, Na, Mg, Si, Ca, Ti, and Fe. Description: Our data were obtained in the course of the ESO Large Programme 171.B-0520(A) (PI: G. F. Gilmore; see also Paper I; Wyse et al., 2006ApJ...639L..13W; Wilkinson et al., 2006Msngr.124...25W; Koch et al., 2007AJ....133..270K, for details) that aims at studying the kinematic and chemical characteristics of Galactic dSphs.
