This thesis examines the group of high-velocity SGP A stars, discussed by
Rodgers, Harding, and Sadler (1981, RHS), which had been observed at distances
from the plane of more than 1 kpc. RHS found them to be main-sequence
stars, with a velocity dispersion perpendicular to the plane of 66 km/s, and a
range of abundances from -0.5 dex to 0.0 dex (around one third of Population
I to normal Population I abundance).
This combination of properties had not been previously observed in...[Show more]
