J/ApJ/634/977         Redshifts in Cl 0024+16 members             (Moran+, 2005)

A Wide-Field Hubble Space Telescope survey of the cluster Cl 0024+16 at z=0.4. III. Spectroscopic signatures of environmental evolution in early-type galaxies. Moran S.M., Ellis R.S., Treu T., Smail I., Dressler A., Coil A.L., Smith G.P. <Astrophys. J., 634, 977-1001 (2005)> =2005ApJ...634..977M
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Redshifts Keywords: galaxies: clusters: individual (Cl 0024+1654) - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cDgalaxies: evolution - galaxies: formation - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics Abstract: We report results from a panoramic spectroscopic survey of 955 objects in the field of the rich cluster Cl 0024+1654 (z∼0.4), complementing the HST imaging presented in the first paper in this series. Combining with previous work, we compile a catalog of 1394 unique redshifts in the field of this cluster (1334 in Table 2), including 486 cluster members spread across an area 10Mpc in diameter. Our new spectroscopic sample includes over 200 high-quality spectra of cluster members. We examine the properties of a large sample of 104 cluster early-type galaxies as a function of cluster radius and local density, using them as sensitive tracers of the various physical processes that may be responsible for galaxy evolution.

Note (1): F814W magnitudes are corrected for Galactic extinction, adopting E(B-V)=0.057 (Schlegel et al. 1998ApJ...500..525S). Errors in F814W magnitudes are less than 0.05mag rms. Note (2): Typical uncertainty in 10 is 25%, equal to the rms variation in the local density across different measurement methods.

Note (1): Line strengths are given in angstroms of equivalent width, with negative values denoting emission and positive values indicating absorption. No aperture corrections have been applied to the indices. Note (2): The values are aperture corrected to a 3.4" diameter aperture at the distance to the Coma Cluster. Note (3): Mean surface brightness within the effective radius, Re, in rest-frame V band and is corrected for cosmological dimming.
Global Notes: Note (G1): Objects identified as [TEK2003] NN-N-NNN in Simbad (for example: p15i144c4 translates into [TEK2003] 15-4-144)
