ADC_Keywords: Supernovae ; Redshifts Keywords: cosmology: observations - supernovae: general - methods: data analysis - techniques: spectroscopic Abstract: We present 139 spectra of 124 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) that were observed at the ESO/VLT during the first three years of the Canada-France-Hawai Telescope (CFHT) supernova legacy survey (SNLS). This homogeneous data set is used to test for redshift evolution of SN Ia spectra, and will be used in the SNLS 3rd year cosmological analyses. Spectra have been reduced and extracted with a dedicated pipeline that uses photometric information from deep CFHT legacy survey (CFHT-LS) reference images to trace, at sub-pixel accuracy, the position of the supernova on the spectrogram as a function of wavelength. It also separates the supernova and its host light in ∼60% of cases. The identification of the supernova candidates is performed using a spectrophotometric SN Ia model. Description: Spectroscopy of SNLS SN candidates was performed on several 8 to 10-m class telescopes in both hemispheres, namely the VLT, Gemini-N and S, Keck I and II. During the first large program (2003-2005), we performed long slit spectroscopy (LSS) of SN candidates on FORS1 for a total of 60h of dark/grey time per semester. During the second large program (2005-2007), we observed using both FORS1 and FORS2 with the standard collimator in LSS and multi object spectroscopy (MOS) mode. File Summary:

Note (1): Host type of the best fitting model. The number in parenthesis is the age of the best fitting PEGASE template (in Gyrs). Two host types separated by a dash indicate that the best fitting host model is an interpolation between two Kinney et al. (1996ApJ...467...38K) templates. The label "NoGalaxy" denotes that the best fitting model is obtained with no host model.
