Characterizing the low-redshift intergalactic medium toward PKS 1302-102. Cooksey K.L., Prochaska J.X., Chen H.-W., Mulchaey J.S., Weiner B.J. <Astrophys. J., 676, 262-285 (2008)> =2008ApJ...676..262C
ADC_Keywords: QSOs ; Spectroscopy ; Equivalent widths Keywords: galaxies: general - intergalactic medium - quasars: absorption lines - quasars: individual (PKS 1302-102) - techniques: spectroscopic Abstract: We present a detailed analysis of the intergalactic metal-line absorption systems in the archival HST STIS and FUSE ultraviolet spectra of the low-redshift quasar PKS 1302-102 (zQSO=0.2784). We supplement the archive data with CLOUDY ionization models and a survey of galaxies in the quasar field. Description: PKS 1302-102 was observed for a total of 22ks by HST STIS in 2001 August (Program 8306; PI: M. Lemoine). PKS 1302-102 was observed for a total of 149ks with FUSE between 2000 May and 2001 January (Program P108; PI: K. Sembach).
