Infrared photometry, bolometric luminosities, and effective temperatures for giant stars in 26 globular clusters


Infrared observations of 307 giant stars in 26 globular clusters are presented. The effects of H_2O absorption on the infrared colors are examined. The color-color correlations and color-magnitude diagrams, derived using an internally consistent set of distance moduli and reddenings, identify specific clusters with problematical reddenings or low quality optical data. The mean behavior of the color-color relationships is, in all cases, in good agreement with our earlier work.
