III/4 Bibliography of Stellar Radial Velocities (Abt+ 1972)

Bibliography of Stellar Radial Velocities

Abt H.A., Biggs E.S.

<Kitt Peak National Obs., Tucson (1972)>


The data file contains a bibliography of 44,000 references for radial velocities of about 25,000 stars. The individual volumes listed in Table 1 of the Introduction were surveyed for published radial velocities. The authors estimate that 99 percent of stellar radial velocities published by June 1970 are contained in the surveyed volumes. Each record includes star name, HR and HD identifications, RA and Dec (1900), visual magnitude, spectral type, mean velocity corrected for terrestrial motion, number of measures, reference and remarks.
