  journal={Astronomy and Astrophysics},
Aims. We use kinematical and chemical properties of 754 CoRoT stars to characterise the stellar populations of the Milky Way disc in three beams close the Galactic plane. Methods. From the atmospheric parameters derived in Gazzano et al. (2010, AA but not for the most inner bin 7−8 kpc, probably because of the uncertainties in the abundances), which could be interpreted as radial migration evidence. We also measured a radial metallicity gradient value of −0.097±0.015 dex kpc −1 with giant stars… 
The Gaia-ESO Survey: the Galactic thick to thin disc transition
Aims. The nature of the thick disc and its relation to the thin disc is presently an important subject of debate. In fact, the structural and chemo-dynamical transition between disc populations can
Kinematics and chemical properties of the Galactic stellar populations - The HARPS FGK dwarfs sample
(Abridged) We analyze chemical and kinematical properties of about 850 FGK solar neighborhood long-lived dwarfs observed with the HARPS high-resolution spectrograph. The stars in the sample have logg
In the thick of it: metal-poor disc stars in RAVE
By selecting in the Radial Velocity Experiment-fourth data release (RAVE-DR4) survey the stars located between 1 and 2 kpc above the Galactic plane, we question the consistency of the simplest
Through thick and thin: Structure of the Galactic thick disc from extragalactic surveys
Context. We aim to understand the accretion history of the Milky Way by exploring the vertical and radial properties of the Galactic thick disc. Aims: We study the chemical and kinematic properties
Asymmetric metallicity patterns in the stellar velocity space with RAVE
Context. The chemical abundances of stars encode information on their place and time of origin. Stars formed together in e.g. a cluster, should present chemical homogeneity. Also disk stars
The Gaia-ESO Survey: characterisation of the [α/Fe] sequences in the Milky Way discs
Context. High-resolution spectroscopic surveys of stars indicate that the Milky Way thin and thick discs follow different paths in the chemical space defined by [alpha/Fe] vs. [Fe/H], possibly
The rich are different : evidence from the RAVE survey for stellar radial migration
Using the RAdial Velocity Experiment fourth data release (RAVE DR4), and a new metallicity calibration that will be also taken into account in the future RAVE DR5, we investigate the existence and
The Gaia-ESO Survey: Insights into the inner-disc evolution from open clusters
Context. The inner disc, which links the thin disc with the bulge, has been somewhat neglected in the past because of the intrinsic difficulties in its study, among which crowding and high
Kinematics and Velocity Ellipsoid Parameters of Stellar Groups and Open Star Clusters: II Cool Stars
Based on the galactic space velocity components (U, V, W) and with aid of the vector and matrix analyses, we computed the velocity ellipsoid parameters for 790 late-type stars from CoRoT (Convection,
The Gaia -ESO Survey : Separating disk chemical substructures with cluster models∗: Evidence of a separate evolution in the metal-poor thin disk
Context. Recent spectroscopic surveys have begun to explore the Galactic disk system on the basis of large data samples, with spatial distributions sampling regions well outside the solar


A spectroscopic survey of thick disc stars outside the solar neighbourhood
Context. In the era of large spectroscopic surveys, Galactic archaeology aims to understand the formation and evolution of the Milky Way by means of large datasets. In particular, the kinematic and
Through thick and thin: kinematic and chemical components in the solar neighbourhood
We search for chemically distinct stellar components in the solar neighbourhood using a compilation of published data. Extending earlier work, we show that when the abundances of Fe, α elements and
Vertical distribution of Galactic disk stars , IV. AMR and AVR from clump giants
We present the parameters of 891 stars, mostly clump giants, including atmospheric parameters, distances, absolute magnitudes, spatial velocities, galactic orbits and ages. One part of this sample
Galactic kinematics with RAVE data - I. The distribution of stars towards the Galactic poles
We analyze the distribution of G and K type stars towards the Galactic poles using RAVE and ELODIE radial velocities, 2MASS photometric star counts, and UCAC2 proper motions. The combination of
Vertical distribution of Galactic disk stars - I. Kinematics and metallicity
Nearly 400 Tycho-2 stars have been observed in a 720 square degree field in the direction of the North Galactic Pole with the high resolution echelle spectrograph ELODIE. Absolute magnitudes,
On the metallicity gradient of the Galactic disk
Aims. The iron abundance gradient in the Galactic stellar disk provides fundamental constraints on the chemical evolution of this important Galaxy component, however the spread around the mean slope
Radial mixing and the transition between the thick and thin Galactic discs
The analysis of the kinematics of solar neighbourhood stars shows that the low- and high-metallicity tails of the thin disc are populated by objects which orbital properties suggest an origin in the
Present state and promises to unravel the structure and kinematics of the Milky Way with the RAVE survey
Abstract The RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) is an ambitious survey to measure the radial velocities, temperatures, surface gravities, metallicities and abundance ratios for up to a million stars
A new α-enhanced super-solar metallicity population
We performed a uniform and detailed analysis of 1112 high-resolution spectra of FGK dwarfs obtained with the HARPS spectrograph at the ESO 3.6 m telescope (La Silla, Chile). Most stars have effective
Distance determination for RAVE stars using stellar models . II. Most likely values assuming a standard stellar evolution scenario
The RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) is a spectroscopic survey of the Milky Way which already collected over 400000 spectra of ∼330000 different stars. We use the subsample of spectra with
