III/213   General Catalog of mean radial velocities  (Barbier-Brossat+, 2000)

Catalogue general de vitesses radiales moyennes pour les etoiles galactiques. (General catalog of averaged stellar radial velocities for galactic stars.) Barbier-Brossat M., Figon P. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 142, 217 (2000)> =2000A&AS..142..217B
ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities Keywords: catalogs - stars: general - stars: kinematics Abstract: We present a catalogue of mean radial velocities for Galactic stars which supplements the catalogue WEB (1998, See Cat. III/190) with observations published through december 1990. The catalogue contains new mean velocities for 36145 stars, among which 20574 are new. Only observations obtained with adequate spectral resolution and standardized to the IAU or Wilson (1953, Cat. III/21) velocity systems have been used. Entries in the WEB mean radial velocities catalogue have been taken to represent the mean of earlier measurements, to which the new data have been added. The sources of new data are referenced. To make easier the work of users, we have included in our catalogue the results of the catalogue WEB with the agreement of the author. This catalogue supersedes the previous version numbered III/161.

Note (1): See the article sect. 5, column 2, /: two components for the same number Note (2): The first two characters identify the catalog: * BD Bonner Durchmusterung (DE ≥ -22) * CD Cordoba (-22> DE >-52) * CP Cape (DE ≤ -52) (small letters indicate case where the HD convention is not followed) Note (3): From SIMBAD/CDS (spring 1998), when they exist Note (4): From Simbad. If there is no indication or if spectral type and luminosity of the publication are more precise we publish data from the author. If * in n_WEB data are from the WEB III/190 Note (5): Without decimal if the mean standard error > 3.70 km/s. For stars flagged in f_RV column, the velocity is defined as: For double stars (O): systemic velocity of the last published orbit since the publication of the catalogue of Batten et al; (1978PDAO...15..121B) For standard stars: mean radial velocity of UAI For RR Lyrae or Cepheid stars: the best mean radial velocity (see also Note (8) below) Note (6): The flags are: e = for emission radial velocity G = VR of the gravity center for double or multiple system g = VR of the gravity center for a sub-system Note (7): from A to E decreasing quality, I for insufficient data Note (8): The flags are: S = STND : UAI's standard star O = ORB : systemic velocity C = CEPH : cepheid star R = RRLY : RR Lyrae star (see also Note (5) above for the velocity quoted) Note (9): Each reference uses 17 bytes, and has the structure (byte position numbers for first reference): --------------------------------------------------------- 137-140 A4 --- Pub Publication abbreviation 141-143 I3 --- Vol Volume number 144 A1 --- --- [,] 145-148 A4 --- Page Page number 149 A1 --- --- [-] 150-153 I4 --- Year Year of publication --------------------------------------------------------- The Publication abbreviations are as follows: AAP = Astronomy and Astrophysics AAPS = Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series AFA = Arkiv fur Astrophysik AJ = Astronomical Journal AN = Astronomische Nachrichten AP = Astrophysics (Russia) APJ = Astrophysical Journal APJS = Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series ASS = Astrophysics and Space Science AT = Annals of the Tokyo Astronomical Observatory BAIC = Bulletin of the Astronomical Institutes of Czechoslovakia BCDS = Bulletin du centre de Donnees de Strasbourg DAO = Publications of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory IAUS = International Astronomical Union Symposium IBVS = Information Bulletin on Variable Stars JAA = Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy (India) MAKL = Mededelingen van Het Astronomich Institut van de Katholieke Universiteit Leuven MEM = Memoirs of the Royal Astronomical Society MN = Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society MSAI = Memorie della Societa Astronomica Italiana OBS = The Observatory PASJ = Publications of the Astronomical Society of Japan PASP = Publications of the Astronomical Society of Pacific PDDO = Publications of the David Dunlap Observatory POAS = Publications de l'Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg POHP = Publications de l'Observatoire de Haute-Provence RASC = Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada RGOA = Royal Greenwich Observatory Annals RMAA = Revista Mexicana de Astronomia y Astrofisica ROB = Royal Observatory Bulletin SAL = Soviet Astronomy-Letters SAOC = South African Astronomical Observatory Circulars UAI = Transactions of the International Astronomical Union
