CNO abundances in the globular clusters NGC 1851 and NGC 6752

Yong, David; Grundahl, Frank; Norris, John


We measure the C+N+O abundance sum in red giant stars in two Galactic globular clusters, NGC 1851 and NGC 6752. NGC 1851 has a split subgiant branch which could be due to different ages or C+N+O content while NGC 6752 is representative of the least complex globular clusters. For NGC 1851 and NGC 6752, we obtain average values of A(C+N+O) = 8.16 ± 0.10 (σ = 0.34) and 7.62 ± 0.02 (σ = 0.06), respectively. When taking into account the measurement errors, we find a constant C+N+O abundance sum...[Show more]
