Radio emission from the A3571 cluster complex: The final stage of a cluster merger? Venturi T., Bardelli S., Zagaria M., Prandoni I., Morganti R. <Astron. Astrophys. 385, 39 (2002)> =2002A&A...385...39V

The survey was carried out simultaneously at 22cm and 13cm with the Australia Telescope Compact Array, and led to the detection of 124 radio sources at 22cm. The radio source counts in this region are in agreement with the background counts. Among the 36 radio sources with optical counterpart, six have a measured redshift that places them at the distance of the A3571 cluster complex, and nine radio sources have optical counterparts most likely members of this cluster complex. All of the radio galaxies emit at low power level, i.e. P22cm≤1022.6 W/Hz. A number of them are likely to be starburst galaxies. File Summary:

Note (1): a: The optical counterpart is most likely a star. Note (2): R parameter: R2= Delta(r-o)2/(sigmag2+sigmar2), where Delta(r-o) is the positional offset between the radio and optical coordinates, sigmag is the optical position error and sigmar is the uncertainty in the radio position. Note (3): b: The optical candidate falls within the radio isocontours of the double structure. c: These identifications have R>3, however, due to the extent of the radio emission and/or of the optical counterpart, we can consider them reliable since the optical counterpart falls within the radio contours.
