J/MNRAS/392/879   Globular clusters in nearby dwarf galaxies   (Georgiev+, 2009)

Globular cluster systems in nearby dwarf galaxies - I. HST/ACS observations and dynamical properties of globular clusters at low environmental density. Georgiev I.Y., Puzia T.H., Hilker M., Goudfrooij P. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 392, 879-893 (2009)> =2009MNRAS.392..879G
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Clusters, globular ; Photometry ; Morphology Keywords: galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: irregular - galaxies: star clusters Abstract: We investigate the old globular cluster (GC) population of 68 faint (MV>−16mag) dwarf galaxies located in the halo regions of nearby (≲12Mpc) loose galaxy groups and in the field environment based on archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST)/Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) images in F606W and F814W filters. Description: The current study is based on HST/ACS archival data from programs SNAP-9771 and GO-10235, conducted in HST cycles 12 and 13, respectively (PI: I. Karachentsev), and archival HST/ACS data (GO-10210, PI: B. Tully) that were described in Georgiev et al. (2008AJ....135.1858G). File Summary:
