Table information for 'rave.dr3'

General

Table Description:

The third data release of RAVE contains spectroscopic radial velocities for 83072 stars in the Milky-Way southern hemisphere using the 6dF instrument at the AAO.

This data collection has been superceded by RAVE data release 4 (table rave.dr in the data center).

Columns in the data release that resulted from crossmatching were left out.

For details, see 2011AJ....141..187S.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: The RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) contains stellar atmospheric parameters (effective temperature, surface gravity, overall metallicity), radial velocities, chemical abundances and distances. Observations between 2003 and 2013 were used to build the five RAVE data releases.
