Table information for 'rave.dr4'


Table Description: The RAVE object catalog, data release 4. Note that columns with names ending in _k originate from the stellar parameters pipeline, those with names ending in _c come from the chemical pipeline, those with name ending in _sparv come from the radial velocity pipeline. Names ending in _n_k indicate calibrated values.

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.
