Which iDR2iDR3 or iDR2 parameters should be used for science publications?

The following points specifically apply to iDR2iDR3 and iDR2 products as follows:

  1. Astrophysical parameters: parameters homogenised by WG15 (view RecommendedAstroAnalysis) should be used.
  2. Individual abundances: working group recommended abundances should be used for all the elements, with exception of those listed below (view WGRecommededAstroAnalysis).
  3. 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 WG11 report on iDR2 analysis for more details.
  4. 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 here (login required).
