[54.04] Optical Spectroscopy of Globular Clusters in M81 with the W.M. Keck Telescope

L. L. Schroder, J. P. Brodie (UCO/Lick Obs.)

We present high S/N optical spectra of a small sample of globular clusters in the spiral galaxy M81. We present line strength indices on the Lick IDS system and compare them with those for Milky Way and M31 globular clusters. We combine velocity data of our sample with velocities from a previously studied sample of M81 globular clusters and present a brief kinematic analysis of the M81 globular cluster system.
