Asteroseismology of F-type stars has been hindered by an ambiguity in identification of their oscillation modes. The regular mode pattern that makes this task trivial in cooler stars is masked by increased line widths. The absolute mode frequencies, encapsulated in the asteroseismic variable epsilon, can help solve this impasse because the values of epsilon implied by the two possible mode identifications are distinct. We find that the correct epsilon can be deduced from the effective temperature and the line widths and we apply these methods to a sample of solar-like oscillators observed with Kepler.
