SkyMapper stellar parameters for Galactic Archaeology on a grand-scale

Casagrande, Luca; Wolf, Christian; Mackey, Dougal; Nordlander, Thomas; Yong, David; Bessell, Michael


The SkyMapper photometric surveys provides uvgriz photometry for several millions sources in the Southern sky. We use DR1.1 to explore the quality of its photometry, and develop a formalism to homogenize zero-points across the sky using stellar effective temperatures. Physical flux transformations, and zero-points appropriate for this release are derived, along with relations linking colour indices to stellar parameters. Reddening-free pseudo-colours and pseudo-magnitudes are also introduced....[Show more]
