• Contributions to absorption line weakening in the Earth's atmosphere 

    Penner, Kyle; Allende Prieto, Carlos (2008)
    Daytime skylight is an imperfect representation of the solar spectrum. Scattering of light in the Earth’s atmosphere changes the depths of solar absorption lines. This scattering is due to either molecules or dust grains ...

(2014-11)
    We employ the first two years of data from the near-infrared, high-resolution SDSS-III/APOGEE spectroscopic survey to investigate the distribution of metallicity and alpha-element abundances of stars over a large part of ...
