J/ApJ/699/L43       FIRST-NVSS-SDSS AGN sample catalog       (Smolcic+, 2009)

The radio AGN population dichotomy: green valley Seyferts versus red sequence low-excitation active galactic nuclei. Smolcic V. <Astrophys. J., 699, L43-L47 (2009)> =2009ApJ...699L..43S
ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Active gal. nuclei ; Galaxies, radio Keywords: cosmology: observations - galaxies: active - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: fundamental parameters - radio continuum: galaxies Abstract: Radio outflows of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are invoked in cosmological models as a key feedback mechanism in the latest phases of massive galaxy formation. Recently, it has been suggested that the two major radio AGN populations-the powerful high-excitation, and the weak low-excitation radio AGNs (HERAGN and LERAGN, respectively)-represent two earlier and later stages of massive galaxy buildup. To test this, here we make use of a local (0.04<z<0.1) sample of ∼500 radio AGNs with available optical spectroscopy, drawn from the FIRST, NVSS, SDSS, and 3CRR surveys. File Summary:
