The RAdial Velocity Experiment survey, combined with proper motions and distance estimates, can be used to study in detail stellar kinematics in the extended solar neighbourhood (solar suburb). Using 72 365 red-clump stars, we examine the mean velocity components in 3D between 6 <R <10 kpc and -2 <Z <2 kpc, concentrating on north-south differences. Simple parametric fits to the (R, Z) trends for Vφ and the velocity dispersions are presented. We confirm the recently discovered gradient in mean… 
Kinematics with Gaia DR2: the force of a dwarf
We use Gaia DR2 astrometric and line-of-sight velocity information combined with two sets of distances obtained with a Bayesian inference method to study the 3D velocity distribution in the Milky
The GALAH survey: velocity fluctuations in the Milky Way using Red Clump giants
If the Galaxy is axisymmetric and in dynamical equilibrium, we expect negligible fluctuations in the residual line-of-sight velocity field. However, non-axisymmetric structures like a bar, spiral
The vertical force in the solar neighbourhood using red clump stars in TGAS and RAVE
Aims. We investigate the kinematics of red clump (RC) stars in the solar neighbourhood by combining data from Tycho-Gaia Astrometric Solution (TGAS) and Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) to constrain
Local Stellar Kinematics from RAVE data—VII. Metallicity Gradients from Red Clump Stars
Abstract We investigate the Milky Way Galaxy’s radial and vertical metallicity gradients using a sample of 47 406 red clump stars from the RAdial Velocity Experiment Data Release 4. Distances are
Vertical velocities from proper motions of red clump giants
Aims. We derive the vertical velocities of disk stars in the range of Galactocentric radii of R = 5−16 kpc within 2 kpc in height from the Galactic plane. This kinematic information is connected to
The peculiar in-plane velocities in the outer disc of the Milky Way
We present the peculiar in-plane velocities derived from LAMOST red clump stars, which are purified and separated by a novel approach into two groups with different ages. The samples are mostly
THE POWER SPECTRUM OF THE MILKY WAY: VELOCITY FLUCTUATIONS IN THE GALACTIC DISK
We investigate the kinematics of stars in the mid-plane of the Milky Way (MW) on scales between 25 pc and 10 kpc with data from the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE),
Weighing the local dark matter with RAVE red clump stars
We determine the Galactic potential in the solar neigbourhood from RAVE observations. We select red clump stars for which accurate distances, radial velocities, and metallicities have been measured.
Milky Way Thin and Thick Disk Kinematics with Gaia EDR3 and RAVE DR5
We present a detailed analysis of kinematics of the Milky Way disk in the solar neighborhood using the Gaia DR3 catalog. To determine the local kinematics of the stellar disks of the Milky Way we use
