[40.02] The Chemistry of Giants in the Sculptor Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy

D. Geisler (Univ. de Concepcion), V.V. Smith (UTEP), G. Wallerstein (UW), G. Gonzalez (ISU), C. Charbonnel (Obs. de Toulouse)

We will discuss results based on VLT/UVES spectra of giants in the Sculptor dwarf spheroidal galaxy. These high resolution spectra allow us to examine details of the chemical abundances in Sculptor, including Fe, O, alpha elements, Ba, etc. Implications for chemical evolution in Sculptor and the Galaxy will be presented.
