Abundances for Small Magellanic Cloud

  1. Oct 8, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if there is a recent table of the abundances of elements in the Small Magellanic Cloud.

    Thanks all

    The metallicities are fairly low, with [Fe/H]~-0.6 dex or so. The relative abundances in that paper are really good, the absolute ones are somewhat more uncertain as HI is hard to get. Start there, maybe check who has referenced it and go from there.. .

    See also Venn 1999, "A-Type Supergiant Abundances in the Small Magellanic Cloud: Probes of Evolution", references therein and citations to the paper.
