Fig. 12.


Diagrams of the age-[Fe/H]–[α/Fe] distribution in three rotating visualisations (top to bottom). Panels ac: [α/Fe] both as a function of [Fe/H]. Panels df and gi: [α/Fe] and [Fe/H] as a function of age, respectively. We show the density distributions in the left panels (a), (d), and (g). The same distributions are shown with bins coloured by the median age, [Fe/H], and [α/Fe] in the middle panels (b), (e), and (h), respectively. Right panels: same distributions coloured by the standard deviation of age, [Fe/H], and [α/Fe] in the middle panels (c), (f), and (i), respectively. Dots are used for individual stars in sparse regimes instead of density bins. In (panel g), we also show the mean metallicity (red line) and dispersion (red dashed line) as a function stellar age. The mean is decreasing with age from 0.04 to −0.56 dex, while the dispersion is increasing with stellar age from 0.17 to 0.35 dex. See text in Sect. 4.2 for detailed discussion.
