HERBS I: Metallicity and alpha enhancement along the Galactic bulge minor axis

Duong, Ly; Asplund, Martin; Nataf, David M.; Freeman, Kenneth; Ness, Melissa; Howes, L. M.


To better understand the origin and evolution of the Milky Way bulge, we have conducted a survey of bulge red giant branch and clump stars using the High Efficiency and Resolution Multi-Element Spectrograph on the Anglo–Australian Telescope. We targeted ARGOS survey stars with predetermined bulge memberships, covering the full metallicity distribution function. The spectra have signal-to-noise ratios comparable to, and were analysed using the same methods as the GALAH survey. In this work, we...[Show more]
