0 The Metallicity of 0 . 5 < z < 1 Field Galaxies

Abstract

We have measured the emission line ratios in a sample of 34 CFRS star-forming galaxies with redshifts between 0.5 < z < 1.0, and computed their metallicities by means of the empirically-calibrated R23 metallicity estimator introduced by Pagel et al. (1979). The current analysis concentrates on the 15 galaxies with LHβ > 1.2× 10 41 erg s. Although our… (More)
