III/204      Stellar radial velocities bibliographic catalog (Malaroda+, 2000)

Bibliographic catalogue of stellar radial velocities (1991-1994) Malaroda S., Levato,H., Morrell, N., Garcia B., Grosso, M., Bolzicco, G.J. <Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser. 144, 1 (2000)> =2000A&AS..144....1M
ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities ; References Keywords: catalogues - stars: kinematics - techniques: radial velocities Abstract: We present a bibliographic catalogue of stellar radial velocities with 13359 entries for stars in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds, obtained from the issues of several journals published in the period 1991-1994. We have tried to follow the structure of previous compilations although we have relied on data retrieved from the SIMBAD database. File Summary:

Note (1): We have preferred for identification the HD, CD or CPD numbers, in that order. Stars in clusters are indicated with the cluster's name and the number of the stars according to the primary identification paper for that particular cluster, found either at SIMBAD or Mermilliod's database (which was accessed through the web of the Geneva Observatory). Note (2): Right ascension is given to the tenth of a minute and has been retrieved from SIMBAD. Declination is given to the minute and has been retrieved from SIMBAD. Note (3): Spectra have been retrieved from the SIMBAD database. In some cases, when the number of symbols is large, the spectral type has been truncated. Note (4): For each object we have included the average radial velocity provided by the author. If the number of radial velocity measurements is more than 1, and an average has not been calculated by the author, we have not included any radial velocity at all. If the star is a spectroscopic binary, for which an orbit has been computed, then the systemic radial velocity is quoted in this column. Note (5): We have included in this column an acronym to indicate the nature of the star, when mentioned by the author. Acronyms are as follows: CEPH: Cepheids ORB: An orbit has been computed. The systemic radial velocity is listed SB1: Single lined binary SB2: Double lined binary EM: Emission lines. The radial velocity is derived from emission lines SB: Spectroscopic binary CV: Cataclysmic variable VAR: Star with variable radial velocity, according to the author LMC: Star belonging to the Large Magellanic Cloud STND: Radial velocity standard CONST: Star with constant radial velocity, according to the author SYMB: Symbiotic star BMP: Blue metal poor star VB: Visual binary Note (6): We have included in this column one of the above parameters. It is not possible to confuse the resolving power with any of the other two parameters because, in general, resolving power is a relatively large number compared with dispersion or resolution. As in the case of the dispersion or resolution, an ambiguity may arise, we have added an R to the number when it refers to the resolution. COR: radial velocity was derived through cross correlation techniques (like Coravel, for example) REL: relative velocity SEV: more than one resolving power or resolution have been used OP: objective prism observations IUE: radial velocities were derived from observations obtained with the International Ultraviolet Explorer (See cat. VI/99)
