Nicholls , David; Dopita, Michael; Sutherland, Ralph


The measurement of electron temperatures and metallicities in H II regions and planetary nebulae (PNe) has - for several decades - presented a problem: results obtained using different techniques disagree. What is worse, they disagree consistently. There
