The DEEP3 Galaxy Redshift Survey: Keck/DEIMOS spectroscopy in the GOODS-N field. Cooper M.C., Aird J.A., Coil A.L., Davis M., Faber S.M., Juneau S., Lotz J.M., Nandra K., Newman J.A., Willmer C.N.A., Yan R. <Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser., 193, 14 (2011)> =2011ApJS..193...14C

C. Cooper et al. 2011, in preparation). Observations of 370 unique targets down to a limiting magnitude of RAB=24.4 yielded 156 secure redshifts. In addition to redshift information, we provide sky-subtracted one- and two-dimensional spectra of each target. Observations were conducted following the procedures of the Team Keck Redshift Survey (TKRS, Cat. J/AJ/127/3121), thereby producing spectra that augment the TKRS sample while maintaining the uniformity of its spectral database. Description: Spectroscopic observations using DEIMOS were completed during April 2009 and 2010, with a nominal spectral coverage of 4600-9800Å at a resolution (FWHM) of ∼3.5Å. File Summary:
