III/165       A CATALOGUE OF [Fe/H] DETERMINATIONS, 1991 ed.  (Cayrel, 1992)

A Catalogue of [Fe/H] determinations, 1991 ed. Cayrel de Strobel G., Hauck B., Francois P., Thevenin F., Friel E., Mermilliod M., Borde S.: <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 95, 273-336, (1992)> =1992A&AS...95..273C
ADC_Keywords: Abundances ; Abundances, [Fe/H] Abstract: The catalog includes only [Fe/H] determinations obtained from high resolution spectroscopic observations based on detailed spectroscopic analyses, most of them carried out with model-atmospheres. The catalogue contains 3252 determinations for 1676 stars. The use of solid state detectors and powerful telescopes has enabled spectroscopists to observe faint stars belonging to distant star-clusters and even to the Magellanic Clouds. As a result, the catalogue now contains a good number of [Fe/H] determinations for stars from open and globular clusters, and for some supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds. File Summary:
