J/MNRAS/273/157     A faint galaxy survey to B = 24.     (Glazebrook+ 1995)

A faint galaxy redshift survey to B = 24. Glazebrook K., Ellis R., Colless M., Broadhurst T., Allington-Smith J., Tanvir N. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 273, 157 (1995)> =1995MNRAS.273..157G (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Redshifts ; Galaxies, photometry Description: Using the multi-slit LDSS-2 spectrograph on the William Herschel Telescope we have completed a redshift survey in the magnitude range 22.5<B<24 which produced 73 redshifts representing a 73% complete sample uniformly selected from four deep fields at high galactic latitude. The survey extends to z>1 and includes the highest redshift galaxy (z=1.108) yet discovered in a field sample. File Summary:

Note (1): the numeric values correspond to fields: 03.31 = 03z3_A (B limit for 70% completeness: 24.0mag) 10.21 = 10z2_A (B limit for 70% completeness: 24.0mag) 10.22 = 10z2_B (B limit for 70% completeness: 24.0mag) 10.23 = 10HST1 (B limit for 70% completeness: 24.0mag, and B>22.5) 13.21 = 13z2_A (B limit for 70% completeness: 23.3mag) 13.22 = 13HST1 (B limit for 70% completeness: 23.5mag, and B>22.5) 22.31 = 22z3_A (B limit for 70% completeness: 23.0mag) Note (2): The object's unique ID number (designated [GEC95] in SIMBAD) is of the form ff.nnn , where ff = RA field (03, 10 etc.) and nnn = ID number in photometric catalogue (e.g. 10.288 is #288 in 10z2_Bcdd catalog) Note (3): the value 9.999 indicates UnIDitenfied, and a value of 0.000 indicates a star. Note (4): The spectrum type is A = Absorption line galaxy E = Emission line galaxy Q = QSO Note (5): Equivalent width of [OII] line (3727Angstroems at rest): when EW=0 and e_EW>0 then e_EW represents an upper limit; when EW=0 and e_EW=0 then no value is known. Note (6): the values of Q are: Q = 1 : certain Q = 2 : uncertain Q = 3 : no identification Q = 4 : dud, missing Note (7): The following symbols are used: + = emission ; - = absorption; Missing? = no apparent signal; Weak = barely detected continuum; Featureless = well-detected continuum, but no real features
