Title: A SHORT SCALE LENGTH FOR THE {alpha}-ENHANCED THICK DISK OF THE MILKY WAY: EVIDENCE FROM LOW-LATITUDE SEGUE DATA

Abstract

We examine the {alpha}-element abundance ratio, [{alpha}/Fe], of 5620 stars, observed by the Sloan Extension for Galactic Understanding and Exploration survey in the region 6 kpc
