The 6dF Galaxy Survey: a low-redshift benchmark for bulge-dominated galaxies

Colless, Matthew; Jones, Heath; Proctor, Robert, N; Harrison, Craig; Campbell, Lachlan; Lah, Philip


The 6dF Galaxy Survey provides a very large sample of galaxies with reliable measurements of Lick line indices and velocity dispersions. This sample can be used to explore the correlations between mass and stellar population parameters such as age, metallicity and [/Fe]. Preliminary results from such an analysis are presented here, and show that age and metallicity are significantly anti-correlated for both passive and star-forming galaxies. Passive galaxies have strong correlations between...[Show more]
