J/ApJ/704/964     Spectroscopic study of Of+ supergiants    (De Becker+, 2009)

Spectroscopic study of the variability of three northern Of+ supergiants. De Becker M., Rauw G., Linder N. <Astrophys. J., 704, 964-974 (2009)> =2009ApJ...704..964D
ADC_Keywords: Stars, supergiant ; Stars, O ; Stars, early-type ; Spectral types Keywords: stars: early-type - stars: individual (HD 14947, HD 15570, HD 16691) - stars: mass loss - supergiants Abstract: The transition from early Of stars to WN-type objects is poorly understood. O-type supergiants with emission lines (OIf+) are considered to be intermediate between these two classes. The scope of this paper is to investigate the spectral variability of three Of+ supergiants. We constituted spectral time series of unprecedented quality for our targets (∼200 spectra in total), essentially in the blue domain, covering timescales from a few hours up to a few years. Temporal Variance Spectrum and Fourier analyses were performed in order to characterize their spectral variability. Description: Spectroscopic observations were collected at the Observatoire de Haute-Provence (OHP, France) during several observing runs from 2004 October to 2007 Autumn. All spectra were obtained with the Aurelie spectrograph fed by the 1.52m telescope. The detailed journal of the observations is given in Table 2. File Summary:
