Abstract: Basic stellar parameters such as effective temperature, surface gravity, chemical composition, and projected rotational velocity, are important to classify stars and are crucial for successful asteroseismic modelling. However, the Kepler space data do not provide such information. Therefore, ground-based spectral and multi-colour observations of Kepler asteroseismic targets are necessary to complement the space data. For this purpose, in coordination with the KASC ground-based observational Working Groups, high-resolution spectroscopic data for more than 500 B, A, F and G-type stars were collected.
