New light on the search for low-metallicity galaxies - I. The N2 calibrator.

DENICOLO G., TERLEVICH R. and TERLEVICH E.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present a simple metallicity estimator based on the logarithmic [NII] λ6584/Hα ratio, hereafter N2, which we envisage will become very useful for ranking galaxies in a metallicity sequence from redshift survey-quality data even for moderately low spectral resolution.

We have calibrated the N2 estimator using a compilation of HII galaxies having accurate oxygen abundances, plus photoionization models covering a wide range of abundances. The comparison of models and observations indicates that both primary and secondary nitrogen are important for the relevant range of metallicities.

The N2 estimator follows a linear relation with log(O/H) that holds for the whole abundance range covered by the sample, from approximately 1/50th to twice the Solar value [7.2<12+log(O/H)<9.1]. We suggest that the ([Sii] λλ6717,6731/Hα ratio (hereafter S2) can also be used as a rough metallicity indicator. Because of its large scatter the S2 estimator will be useful only in systems with very low metallicity, where [Nii] λ 6584 is not detected or in low-resolution spectra where [Nii] λ 6584 is blended with Hα
