Abstract

We present O(2+)/H(+) values for the Orion Nebula, M17, and NGC 6572 based on O II recombination lines, which are independent of the temperature structure of the observed nebulae. In the H II regions sampled (Orion and M17) the O(2+)/H(+) values derived from O II recombination lines are about a factor of two higher than those derived from O III forbidden lines. These differences can be accounted for by the presence of spatial temperature variations over the observed volumes. The abundances derived from the recombination lines eliminate the O/H discrepancy between the stellar values and the H II region values of the solar neighborhood.
