Properties of Globular Cluster Systems in Nearby Early-Type Galaxies
We present a study of globular clusters (GCs) in 17 relatively nearby early-type galaxies, based on deep F555W and F814W images from the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, on board the Hubble SpaceExpand
Hubble Space Telescope ACS Wide-Field Photometry of the Sombrero Galaxy Globular Cluster System*
A detailed imaging analysis of the globular cluster (GC) system of the Sombrero galaxy (NGC 4594) has been accomplished using a six-image mosaic from the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera forExpand
Constraints on mass loss and self-enrichment scenarios for the globular clusters of the Fornax dSph
Recently, high-dispersion spectroscopy has demonstrated conclusively that four of the five globular clusters (GCs) in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal galaxy are very metal-poor with [Fe/H]<−2. TheExpand
Chemical composition and constraints on mass loss for globular clusters in dwarf galaxies: WLM and IKN
Aims. We determine the metallicities of globular clusters (GCs) in the WLM and IKN dwarf galaxies, using VLT/UVES and Keck/ESI spectroscopy. These measurements are combined with literature data forExpand
Detailed abundance analysis from integrated high-dispersion spectroscopy: globular clusters in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal
Aims. We describe our newly developed approach to detailed abundance analysis from integrated-light high-dispersion spectra of star clusters. As a pilot project, we measure abundances of severalExpand
Dynamics of the NGC 4636 globular cluster system - An extremely dark matter dominated galaxy?
Context. We present the first dynamical study of the globular cluster s ystem of NGC 4636. It is the southernmost giant elliptical galaxy of the Virgo cluster, and is claimed to be extremely darkExpand
Nitrogen abundances and multiple stellar populations in the globular clusters of the Fornax dSph
We use measurements of nitrogen abundances in red giants to search for multiple stellar populations in the four most metal-poor globular clusters (GCs) in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal galaxy (FornaxExpand
Structure and mass of a young globular cluster in ngc 6946
Using the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on board the Hubble Space Telescope, we have imaged a luminous young star cluster in the nearby spiral galaxy NGC?6946. Within a radius of 65 pc, the clusterExpand
The globular cluster system of NGC 1399. II. Kinematics of a large sample of globular clusters
We study the kinematics and dynamics of the globular cluster system of NGC 1399, the brightest elliptical galaxy near the center of the Fornax cluster of galaxies. The observational data consists ofExpand
Structural Parameters and Dynamical Masses for Globular Clusters in M33
Using high-dispersion spectra from the HIRES echelle spectrograph on the Keck I telescope, we measure velocity dispersions for four globular clusters (GCs) in M33. Combining the velocity dispersionsExpand
