The first chemical abundance analysis of K giants in the inner Galactic disc

Bensby, T; Alves-Brito, A; Oey, M. S.; Yong, David; Melendez, Jorge

Description

Aims. The elemental abundance structure of the Galactic disc has been extensively studied in the solar neighbourhood using long-lived stars such as F and G dwarfs or K and M giants. These are stars whose atmospheres preserve the chemical composition of their natal gas clouds, and are hence excellent tracers of the chemical evolution of the Galaxy. As far as we are aware, there are no such studies of the inner Galactic disc, which hampers our ability to constrain and trace the origin and...[Show more]
