Column Name | Description | Datatype |
---|---|---|

ariii7135_chisq | Reduced chi-squared of the line fit over the bandpass used for the EW measurement | REAL |

ariii7135_cont | Continuum at line center from 200 pixel median smoothing of the emission-line subtracted continuum | REAL |

ariii7135_cont_err | Error in the continuum computed from the variance in the band pass | REAL |

ariii7135_eqw | The equivalent width of the CB08 continuum-subtracted emission line computed from straight integration over the bandpasses listed below (emisison is negative) . This properly takes into account stellar absorption. Note that it will not be correct in the case of blended lines (ie NII & H-alpha) -- instead use FLUX/CONT. | REAL |

ariii7135_eqw_err | Error in the equivalent width described above | REAL |

ariii7135_flux | Flux from Gaussian fit to continuum subtracted data. (Note that the fit is done simultaneously to all the lines so de-blending happens automatically) | REAL |

ariii7135_flux_err | Error in the flux | REAL |

ariii7135_reqw | The equivalent width of the continuum-subtracted emission line computed from straight integration over the bandpasses listed below (emisison is negative).

In general the EQW measurements provide a better measure of the true equivalent width. The purpose of this measurement is to help characterize the stellar absorption effecting the line.
