ADC_Keywords: Redshifts ; Clusters, galaxy Keywords: galaxies: clusters of - galaxies: redshifts - cosmology: observations - dark matter Description: We describe the results of the ESO Key-programme on "Structure and Dynamics of Rich Galaxy Clusters" (which we will henceforth refer to as the ESO Nearby Abell Cluster Survey - or ENACS). We discuss the sample of clusters for which data were obtained, and the observational programme of spectroscopy and photometry that we carried out. The final database contains a total of 5634 galaxies in the directions of 107 clusters from the catalogue by Abell, Corwin and Olowin 1989 (ACO hereafter) with richness R≥1 and mean redshifts z≤0.1.
