The study is based on new and archival far-ultraviolet spectroscopy of a sample of white dwarfs in the temperature range 30000K≤Teff≤64000K. The spectra obtained with the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer, along with spectra obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph and the International Ultraviolet Explorer, sample FeIII-FeVI absorption lines, enabling a detailed iron abundance analysis over a wider range of effective temperatures than previously afforded. Description: The FUSE observations were made using the 30"x30" low-resolution slit (LWRS), resulting in 100% throughput and ensuring complete spectral coverage (900Å≤λ≤180Å) with a spectroscopic resolving power R=lambda/δλ=20000+/2000.
