VII/230             CfA Redshift Survey, Version Feb. 2000    (Huchra+ 2000)

The CfA Redshift Survey, Version Feb. 2000 Huchra J.P., et al. <Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (2000)>
ADC_Keywords: Redshifts Description: The CfA Redshift Survey was started in 1977 by Marc Davis, John Huchra, Dave Latham and John Tonry. The First CfA Survey, completed in 1982, (Huchra, Davis, Latham and Tonry, 1983, ApJS 52, 89) had as its goal the measurement of radial velocities for all galaxies brighter than 14.5 and at high galactic latitude in the merged catalogs of Zwicky and Nilson (the UGC). This survey produce the first large area and moderately deep maps of large scale structure in the nearby universe, as well as the first crude but truly quantitative measurements of the 3-D clustering properties of galaxies. The second CfA survey (CfA2) was started by John Huchra and Margaret Geller in the winter of 1984/5. Between 1985 and 1995, we and our students and co-workers measured relative distances via redshifts for about 18,000 bright galaxies in the northern sky.
