Abstract

Line strengths and their gradients in Mg, Fe, and Hβ have been determined for a sample of 20 S0 galaxies in order to study the stellar populations of their bulges and disks and to investigate their relationship to elliptical galaxies. The data were obtained with the Lick Observatory 3m telescope in the long-slit mode over the region 4215–5615 Å with resolution 3.1 Å.
