ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Active gal. nuclei ; Radio continuum Keywords: catalogues - galaxies: active - radio continuum: galaxies Abstract: We present the results of a project using wide-field Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observations at 1.4GHz of 2865 known radio sources in the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field, whose main objective is to determine where Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are present. The combination of number of sources, sensitivity, angular resolution and area covered by this project are unprecedented. A catalogue which contains the VLBI detected sources is presented, the main purpose of which is to be used as an AGN catalogue. A catalogue containing complementary multiwavelength information of the VLBI detected sources is also presented. Description: Wide-field Very Long Baseline Interferometry observations were made of all known radio sources in the COSMOS field at 1.4GHz using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). We also collected complementary multiwavelength information from the literature for the VLBA detected sources. File Summary:
