J/ApJ/663/734       Interacting Galaxies in GEMS and GOODS    (Elmegreen+, 2007)

Smooth and starburst tidal tails in the GEMS and GOODS fields. Elmegreen D.M., Elmegreen B.G., Ferguson T., Mullan B. <Astrophys. J., 663, 734-751 (2007)> =2007ApJ...663..734E
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, peculiar ; Redshifts Keywords: galaxies: formation - galaxies: high-redshift Abstract: GEMS and GOODS fields were examined to z∼1.4 for galaxy interactions and mergers. The basic morphologies are familiar: antennae with long tidal tails, tidal dwarfs, and merged cores; M51-type galaxies with disk spirals and tidal arm companions; early-type galaxies with diffuse plumes; equal-mass grazing collisions; and thick J-shaped tails beaded with star formation and double cores. One type is not common locally and is apparently a loose assemblage of smaller galaxies. Photometric measurements were made of the tails and clumps, and physical sizes were determined assuming photometric redshifts. Description: The GOODS and GEMS images from the public archive were used for this study. They include exposures in four filters for GOODS: F435W (B435), F606W (V606), F775W (i775), and F850LP (z850); and two filters (V606 and z850) for GEMS. File Summary:
