VESPA - VErsatile SPectral AnalysisWelcome to the VESPA database. VESPA is a code to recover star formation and metallicity histories, dust content and present-day stellar masses from galactic spectra. The algorithm is described in detail in Tojeiro et al. 2007 (MNRAS, 381, 1252).
This database is the main repository for VESPA's results. Currently it holds detailed star formation histories and other parameters for SDSS's latest data release (DR7) of the Main Galaxy Sample (MGS) and the Luminous Red Galaxies (LRG) sample. Details of the catalogue, including description, basic properties and example queries can be found in Tojeiro et al. 2009 (ApJS, 185, 1). Please cite this paper when using data from this catalogue.
