Information on Service 'RAVE DR5 Cone Search'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

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 built the 5 RAVE data releases.
