We measure line-of-sight velocity dispersions from integrated emission for 1089 galaxies with median redshift 0.637 and spatially resolved kinematics for a subsample of 380 galaxies. This is the largest sample of galaxies to z∼1 with kinematics to date and allows us to measure kinematic properties without morphological pre-selection. Emission-line widths provide a dynamical measurement for the bulk of blue galaxies. To fit the spatially resolved kinematics, we construct models that fit both line-of-sight rotation amplitude and velocity dispersion. Integrated line width correlates well with a combination of the velocity gradient and dispersion and is a robust measure of galaxy kinematics. Description: The parent sample for our kinematic measurements is the TKRS in the GOODS-N field. The selection and observations are described at length by Wirth et al. (2004, Cat. J/AJ/127/3121), and we present a few relevant details here. Data and images of TKRS galaxies may be retrieved from the TKRS Web site ( File Summary:

Note (2): From SED K correction procedure described in text. Note (3): Galaxies with logsig1d=1.4 and e_logsig1d=0.2 are kinematically unresolved, see text.

Note (1): Rotation velocities for galaxies with Del-PA>40° are biased low due to slit misalignment. Note (2): Values are near-quantized in units of 5km/s due to the model grid. Note (3): Only galaxies with Del-PA<40° and ellipticity >0.25 were classified for morphology.
