1997AJ....114..122G SPECTROSCOPY OF EDGE-ON SPIRALS RICCARDO GIOVANELLI AND ERIC AVERA Center for Radiophysics and Space Research and National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center, Cornell University. Ithaca, New York 14853 Electronic mail: riccardo@astrosun.tn.cornell.edu IGOR D. KARACHENTSEV Special Astrophysical Observatory. Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Zelenchukskaya, Stavropolsky Kraj. 357147 Russia Electronic mail: ikar@smile.sao.ru Received 1997 January 23; revised 1997 April 9 ABSTRACT We present H I line observations of 744 edge-on spiral galaxies, extracted from the Flat Galaxy Catalog of Karachentsev et al. (1993). Fluxes, systemic velocities and line widths are given for 587 detected galaxies, as well as search parameters for 157 undetected systems. Widths are corrected for instrumental broadening, smoothing, signal-to-noise and profile shape, and an estimate of the error on the width is given. When corrected for turbulent broadening and inclination angle of the disks, the velocity widths presented here can provide the appropriate line width parameter needed to derive distances via the Tully-Fisher relation.
