J/AJ/135/631    Reddenings for the MACHO bulge RR0 Lyrae stars   (Kunder+, 2008)

The extinction toward the Galactic Bulge from RR Lyrae stars. Kunder A., Popowski P., Cook K.H., Chaboyer B. <Astron. J., 135, 631-636 (2008)> =2008AJ....135..631K
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Stars, population II ; Reddening ; Surveys Keywords: dust, extinction - Galaxy: center - stars: statistics - surveys Abstract: We present mean reddenings toward 3525 RR0 Lyrae stars from the Galactic bulge fields of the MACHO Survey. These reddenings are determined using the color at minimum V-band light of the RR0 Lyrae stars themselves and are found to be in general agreement with extinction estimates at the same location obtained from other methods.
