Spirals, bridges, and tails: a galaxy evolution explorer ultraviolet atlas of interacting galaxies. Smith B.J., Giroux M.L., Struck C., Hancock M. <Astron. J., 139, 1212-1241 (2010)> =2010AJ....139.1212S
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Photometry, SDSS ; Ultraviolet Keywords: galaxies: interactions - galaxies: starburst - ultraviolet: galaxies Abstract: We have used the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) ultraviolet telescope to study stellar populations and star formation morphology in a well-defined sample of 42 nearby optically selected pre-merger interacting galaxy pairs. Galaxy interactions were likely far more common in the early universe than in the present; thus our study provides a nearby well-resolved comparison sample for high-redshift studies. We have combined the GALEX near-ultraviolet (NUV) and far-ultraviolet images with broadband optical maps from the Sloan Digitized Sky Survey to investigate the ages and extinctions of the tidal features and the disks.
