Warm Molecular Hydrogen in the Spitzer SINGS Galaxy Sample
Results on the properties of warm molecular hydrogen in 57 normal galaxies are derived from measurements of H_2 rotational transitions, obtained as part of SINGS. This study extends previous
The Spatial Homogeneity of Nebular and Stellar Oxygen Abundances in the Local Group Dwarf Irregular Galaxy NGC 6822
To test the existence of a possible radial gradient in oxygen abundances within the Local Group dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822, we have obtained optical spectra of 19 nebulae with the EFOSC2
On the oxygen abundance determination in HII regions. - High-metallicity regions
This is our second paper devoted to the problem of line intensity -oxygen abundance calibration starting from the idea of McGaugh ([CITE]) that the strong oxygen lines ($[{\rm OII}] \lambda \lambda
First stellar abundances in NGC 6822 from VLT-UVES and Keck-Hires spectroscopy
We have obtained the first high-resolution spectra of individual stars in the dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822. The spectra of the two A-type supergiants were obtained at the Very Large Telescope and
Testing Evolutionary Models with Red Supergiant and Wolf–Rayet Populations
Despite the many successes that modern massive star evolutionary theory has enjoyed, reproducing the apparent trend in the relative number of red supergiants (RSGs) and Wolf–Rayet (WR) stars has
Metallicity calibrations of galaxies with low star formation rates : the influence of a stochastic IMF
We present a study of the consequences of an initial mass function that is stochastically sampled on the main emission lines used for gas-phase metallicity estimates in extra-galactic sources. We use
We investigate the oxygen and nitrogen abundance distributions across the optical disks of 130 nearby late-type galaxies using around 3740 published spectra of H II regions. We use these data in
"Counterpart" method for abundance determinations in HII regions
We suggest a new way of the determining abundances and electron temperatures in HII regions from strong emission lines. Our approach is based on the standard assumption that HII regions with similar
Spectral Types of Red Supergiants in NGC 6822 and the Wolf-Lundmark-Melotte Galaxy
We present moderate-resolution spectroscopic observations of red supergiants (RSGs) in the low-metallicity Local Group galaxies NGC 6822 (Z = 0.4 Z ☉) and Wolf-Lundmark-Melotte (WLM; Z = 0.1 Z ☉). By
Chemical Composition of Two H II Regions in NGC 6822 Based on VLT Spectroscopy
We present long-slit spectrophotometry of regions V and X of the Local Group irregular galaxy NGC 6822. The data consist of VLT FORS observations in the 3450-7500 A range. We have obtained electron
