J/ApJS/112/245      Redshift survey for IRAS galaxies (Nakanishi+ 1997)

Search and redshift survey for IRAS galaxies behind the Milky Way and structure of the Local Void Nakanishi K., Takata T., Yamada T., Takeuchi T.T., Shiroya R., Miyazawa M., Watanabe S., Saito M. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser. 112, 245 (1997)> =1997ApJS..112..245N (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, IR ; Redshifts Keywords: catalogs - infrared: galaxies - large-scale structure of universe - surveys Abstract: This is the third and final paper (Yamada et al., 1993ApJS...89...57Y and Takata et al., Cat. J/A+AS/104/529) of our systematic visual search for IRAS galaxies behind the Milky Way at |b|≤15°. This paper presents a catalog of 950 IRAS galaxies with 60µm flux densities larger than 0.6Jy located between l=0° and 150°, of which 293 are newly identified by this search. We made a redshift survey for the identified galaxies and obtained new redshift data of 171 galaxies. We also present newly measured redshifts of 27 IRAS galaxies between l=150° and 225° at |b|≤15°. In this paper we studied the structure of the Local void using IRAS galaxies and galaxies from the Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies (Cat. VII/155) in the region l=30°-120° and b=-50° to +30°. The center of the Local void turned out to be located at l∼60°, b~-15°, and cz∼2500km/s, and the size is about 2500km/s along the direction toward the center. File Summary:
