Multi-Element Abundance Measurements From Medium-Resolution Spectra. I. The Sculptor Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy
We present measurements of Fe, Mg, Si, Ca, and Ti abundances for 388 radial velocity member stars in the Sculptor dwarf spheroidal galaxy (dSph), a satellite of the Milky Way (MW). This is the largest sample of individual ...
The Chemical Compositions Of RR Lyrae Type C Variable Stars
We present a detailed chemical abundance study of eight RR Lyrae variable stars of subclass c (RRc). The target RRc stars chosen for study exhibit "Blazhko-effect" period and amplitude modulations to their pulsational ...
Oxygen Abundances In Low- And High-Alpha Field Halo Stars And The Discovery Of Two Field Stars Born In Globular Clusters
Oxygen abundances of 67 dwarf stars in the metallicity range -1.6 < [Fe/H] < -0.4 are derived from a non-LTE analysis of the 777 nm O I triplet lines. These stars have precise atmospheric parameters measured by Nissen and ...
Rubidium And Lead Abundances In Giant Stars Of The Globular Clusters M4 And M5
We present measurements of the neutron-capture elements Rb and Pb for bright giants in the globular clusters M4 and M5. The clusters are of similar metallicity ([Fe/ H] similar or equal to -1.2), but M4 is decidedly s-process ...
