Beginning of ReadMe : J/A+A/379/798 ELAIS Halpha emitting galaxies (Pascual+, 2001) ================================================================================ Halpha emitting galaxies and the star formation rate density at z =  0.24. Pascual S., Gallego J., Aragon-Salamanca A., Zamorano J. <Astron. Astrophys. 379, 798 (2001)> =2001A&A...379..798P ================================================================================ ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Equivalent widths Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: luminosity function, mass function Abstract: We have carried out a survey searching for Halpha emitting galaxies at z 0.24 using a narrow band filter tuned with the redshifted line. The total sky area covered was 0.19 square degrees within the redshift range 0.228 to 0.255 in a set of four fields in the ELAIS-N1 zone. This corresponds to a volume of 9.8x10^3^Mpc^3^ and a look-back time of 3.6Gyr when H=50km/s/Mpc and q=0.5 are assumed. A total of 52 objects are selected as candidates for a broad band limiting magnitude of I 22.9, plus 16 detected only in the narrow band image for a narrow band limiting magnitude for object detection of 21.0. The threshold detection corresponds to about 20AA equivalent width with an uncertainty of  +/-10AA. Point-like objects (15) were excluded from our analysis using CLASS_STAR parameter from SExtractor. The contamination from other emission lines such as [O II]lambda3727, Hbeta and [OIII]lambdalambda4959,5007 at redshifts 1.2, 0.66 and 0.61 respectively is estimated, and found to be negligible at the flux limits of our sample. We find an extinction-corrected Halpha luminosity density of (5.4+/-1.1)x10^39^erg/s/Mpc^3^. Our survey for Halpha emitting galaxies was carried out using the focal reducer CAFOS at the 2.2 m telescope in CAHA (Centro Astronomico Hispano-Aleman, Almeria, Spain). This instrument is equipped with a 2048x2048 Site#1d CCD with 24mum pixels (0.53" on the sky), which covers a circular area of 16'diameter.
