Which iDR2iDR3 or iDR2 parameters should be used for science publications?
The following points specifically apply to iDR2iDR3 and iDR2 products as follows:
- Astrophysical parameters: parameters homogenised by WG15 (view
RecommendedAstroAnalysis) should be used.
- Individual abundances: working group recommended abundances should
be used for all the elements, with exception of those listed below
- Working group recommended abundances were not provided by WG11 for
the following elements: Li, C1, S1, Ca2, Sc1, V2, Sr1, Y1, Zr1, Zr2, Mo1, La2,
Ce2, Pr2, Nd2, Sm2, Eu2, Nb1, Ru1, Gd2, Dy2 (view WGRecommededAstroAnalysis).
For these elements node abundances (views WpNaAstroAnalysis or
NpNaAstroAnalysis or table AstroAnalysis for rows where column
nodeName is not equal to any of 'WG10', 'WG11', 'WG12', 'WG13', 'WG14' or
'WG15') can be used after agreement with the PIs. Please see the
on iDR2 analysis for more details.
- Radial velocities: the radial velocities that must be used in Gaia-ESO
publications are located in column Vrad of view
RecommendedAstroAnalysis. In special cases column rv located in
Table Spectrum can be used but permission must be obtained directly from
the PIs. Further details of the radial velocities in the archive are given
