Fig. 2


Velocity dispersion as a function of [Mg/Fe] for different metallicities. The velocity dispersions are calculated with bins of 0.08 dex in [α/Fe], but are shown slightly offset above. Globally (black lines), the velocity dispersion increases with [Mg/Fe]. However, for many individual metallicity bins the highest-α populations show a decrease in velocity dispersion relative to the lower-α populations of the same metallicity.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
