New improvements in the measurement of both the optical solar spectrum and
laboratory wavelengths for lines of neutral iron are combined to extract
central wavelength shifts for 1446 lines observed in the Sun. This provides
the largest available database of accurate solar wavelengths useful as a
reference for comparison with other solar-type stars. It is shown how the
velocity shifts correlate with line strength, approaching a constant value,
close to zero, for lines with equivalent widths larger than 200 mÅ.

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the
OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access
to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific
search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be
generated by different means.
If your librarian has set up your subscription with an
OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
