These tables also include coordinates, radial velocities and magnitudes from SIMBAD for most stars.
Plots of the abundance trends
Using the data table (containing no
duplicates, solar abundances of Asplund et al. 2009) abundance trends
can be inspected. Plots of all elements can be

I have started classifying as many stars as possible so plotting different groups
of abundance patterns becomes more straight forward. However, when a
star falls into more than just one cateogry, I have classified it
according to it most significant chemical signature. While the grouping
has been tested, this may not suit your ideas/aims/work.
Science key have been assigned to reflect the dominant stellar
RP: r-process enhanced stars
SP: s-process enhanced stars
RS: r- and s-process enhanced stars
DW: star in a classical dwarf galaxy
UF: star in an ultra-faint dwarf galaxy
Feel free to send me more suggestions for categories and/or list of stars in each category.
This table is surely not complete, although great care has been taken
to include all relevant studies. If you like your study to be
included (given that it makes sense to include it), send me an email
and I'll add it. The same holds true for the science
classification. If there are any errors or omissions, please let me
Also, none of these studies (as far as I know) have been selected in
an unbiased fashion -- hence, care
should be taken when trying to
establish comparison with the data from a statistical point of
