(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 > 4 dex, 5000 < Teff < 6500 K, and -1.39 < [Fe/H] < 0.55 dex. We apply a purely chemical analysis approach based on the [alpha/Fe] vs. [Fe/H] plot to separate Galactic stellar populations into the thin disk, thick disk and high-alpha metal-rich (hamr). Our analysis shows a negative gradient of the… Expand
