JINAbase: A database for metal-poor stars

This web application enables you to easily access the database. The different tabs in the navigation bar guide you through the website.

To get access to the user interface to upload your data and help maintain the database, please sign up using the form on this page.

If you find JINAbase useful for your work/plots, please do the following:
  1. Cite the original papers where the data comes from. (We've made that easy for you, just head to the references tab and you'll find a link to the bibtex entry.)
  2. Cite our paper (Abohalima & Frebel 2018, submitted).
  3. Find it here on arxiv.


The web application is still under development, if you face any errors or have any suggestions please contact us.

This tab has options to query the database for a customized sample of stars, it includes several options to customize your sample. After you select your preferences, the queried sample could then be retrieved as an ascii table (for now) or plotted in an interactive plot.

In this tab you can search for a star in JINAbase. There are two options; 1) diplay user selected information for a star or list of stars, 2) plot the abundances as a function of the atomic number(the option to plot scaled solar values will be added soon).

Here you can find all the original papers where the data comes from. You can also find a link to the paper on ADS as well as a direct link to the bibtex entry.
