J/MNRAS/327/1004    Early-type galaxy parameters         (Blakeslee+, 2001)

A synthesis of data from fundamental plane and surface brightness fluctuation surveys. Blakeslee J.P., Lucey J.R., Barris B.J., Hudson M.J., Tonry J.L. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 327, 1004 (2001)> =2001MNRAS.327.1004B
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Redshifts ; Velocity dispersion Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: stellar content Abstract: We perform a series of comparisons between distance-independent photometric and spectroscopic properties used in the surface brightness fluctuation (SBF) and fundamental plane (FP) methods of early-type galaxy distance estimation. The data are taken from two recent surveys: the SBF Survey of Galaxy Distances and the Streaming Motions of Abell Clusters (SMAC) FP survey. We derive a relation between (V-I)0 colour and Mg2 index using nearly 200 galaxies and discuss implications for Galactic extinction estimates and early-type galaxy stellar populations. File Summary:

Note (1): The PD quality parameter is the product of the seeing in arcsec and the velocity in units of 1000km/s in the cosmic microwave background rest frame. It is defined in SBF-II and tabulated in SBF-IV.
