J/ApJ/613/914    Star formation in HI-selected galaxies       (Helmboldt+, 2004)

Star formation in HI-selected galaxies. I. Sample characteristics. Helmboldt J.F., Walterbos R.A.M., Bothun G.D., O'Neil K., De Blok W.J.G. <Astrophys. J., 613, 914-932 (2004)> =2004ApJ...613..914H
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Galaxies, radio ; Equivalent widths Keywords: galaxies: ISM - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: stellar content Abstract: A sample of 69 galaxies with radial velocities of less than 2500km/s was selected from the HI Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS, Cat. VIII/73) and imaged in broadband B and R and narrowband Hα, to deduce details about star formation in nearby disk galaxies while avoiding surface brightness selection effects. Description: Data were acquired during two separate observing runs. Images were obtained at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) with the 0.9m telescope and the Tek 2Kx2K CCD camera during both runs, one on 2000 March 3-9 and the other on 2000 October 23-28 and November 2, 5, and 6.

Note (1): 's' indicates that the Hα flux was calibrated using the R-band flux. Note (2): Hα flux corrected for [NII] emission and Galatic and internal extinction. Note (3): Hα equivalent width corrected for [NII] emission. Note (4): B and R band gas-to-light ratio corrected for Galactic extinction. Note (5): Radial velocity corrected for Virgo-centric infall relative to the rest frame of the Local Group.
Global Notes: Note (G1): the asterisk (*) indicates that galaxy image was most likely taken through clouds and the values listed should be taken as estimates only.
