Fig. 5


Metallicity distribution derived from BOSS spectra of spectrophotometric standard stars. Black lines are as measured, and red lines after correcting selections effects as explained in the text. Upper two panels: distributions for stars with two different upper limits on surface gravity, log g. Two lower panels: change in metallicity distribution for stars exploring the more distant regions of the halo system.
