III/174  High Resolution Atlas of Symbiotic Stars (Van Winckel+ 1993-1994)

An Atlas of High Resolution Line Profiles of Symbiotic Stars Van Winckel H., Duerbeck H.W., Schwarz H.E. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 102, 401 (1993)> =1993A&AS..102..401V An Atlas of High Resolution Line Profiles of Symbiotic Stars Ivison R.J., Bode M.F., Meaburn J. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl.

ADC_Keywords: Atlases; Novae; Stars, double and multiple Description: This catalog contains a high resolution atlas of both northern and southern sky symbiotic stars. It represents an all-sky optical survey of symbiotic stars using Echelle spectrometers. A summary of the stars with positions and a summary of spectra available are included. The wavelength resolution is better than 0.01 nm. The emission lines in this catalog were chosen to allow the determination of global values for the density and temperature of the nebula, as well as the temperature of the ionizing source. Note that some of the spectra with date marked by "++++" in the "ObsDate" column of the "spectra.dat" file are not in the original publications (mostly "low resolution" spectra) File Summary:

Note on File: Catalog file numbered starting with s001 to s059 are from van Winckel et al, 1993A&AS..102..401V; those with numbers s101 to s135 are from Ivison et al., 1994A&AS..103..201I Stars common to both publications have been merged.

Acknowledgments: There was no previous ADC documentation. The original publications (van Winckel et al. 1993; Ivison et al. 1994) were used to create this ReadMe file (Lyu, ADC, 1996). The original data were merged spectra per star. The individual spectra were each put in one file to allow for automated handling and access (Kuin, ADC, 1996).
