      Jakobsson, Páll; Fynbo, Johan P. U.; Ledoux, C.; Vreeswijk, Paul M.; Kann, D. A.; Hjorth, Jens; Priddey, R. S.; Tanvir, N. R.; Reichart, Daniel E.; Gorosabel, Jorge; Klose, Sylvio; Watson, Darach; Sollerman, J.; Fruchter, Andrew S.; Ugarte Postigo, A. de; Wiersema, K.; Bjornsson, G.; Chapman, R.; Thone, C. C.; Pedersen, K.; Jensen, Brian L. (EDP SCIENCES S A, 2006-12)
      Context. Before the launch of the Swift satellite, the majority of the gamma-ray burst (GRB) afterglows for which Lya was redshifted into the observable spectrum showed evidence for a damped Lya absorber. This small sample ...
    • Probing cosmic chemical evolution with gamma-ray bursts: GRB 060206 at z=4.048

S.; Tanvir, N. R. (EDP SCIENCES S A, 2006-06)
      Aims. We present early optical spectroscopy of the afterglow of the gamma-ray burst GRB060206 with the aim of determining the metallicity of the GRB absorber and the physical conditions in the circumburst medium. We also ...
