Detection of a radial velocity gradient in the extended local disc with RAVE

Abstract:

Using a sample of 213713 stars from the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) survey, limited to a distance of 2kpc from the Sun and to |z| < 1kpc, we report the detection of a velocity gradient of disc stars in the fourth quadrant, directed radially from the Galactic Centre. In the direction of the Galactic Centre, we apply a simple method independent of stellar proper motions and of Galactic parameters to assess the existence of this gradient in the RAVE data. This velocity gradient correspo...
