III/216              Stellar Radial Velocities 1991-1998    (Malaroda+ 2001)

Bibliographic catalogue of stellar radial velocities, 1991-1998 Malaroda S., Levato H., Galliani S. <Complejo Astronomico El Leoncito (CASLEO), San Juan, Argentina (2001)>
ADC_Keywords: Radial velocities ; References Keywords: catalogues - stars: kinematics - techniques: radial velocities Description: The present catalogue is the third version and supersedes the first one (1991-1994) published by Malaroda et al. (2000A&AS..144....1M, Cat. III/204). We have revised the issues of the journals listed in Table 1, for the period 1991-1998. It is not a complete list of all journals devoted to astronomical literature, but they are the most important ones and those available at our libraries. We prepared a plain ASCII file with the object identifications as provided by the authors. This file was transferred to the SIMBAD database, and, using the proper formats and filters, we have retrieved the identification for each object according to the rules of SIMBAD. In the same way we have also retrieved: the J2000 coordinates, the V magnitude, and the spectral classification for each object. 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)
