J/AJ/113/22         Tully-Fisher Relation. I. (Giovanelli+ 1997)

The I Band Tully-Fisher Relation for Cluster Galaxies: Data Presentation Giovanelli R., Haynes M.P., Herter T., Vogt N.P., Wegner G., Salzer J.J., Da Costa L.N., Freudling W. <Astron. J. 113, 22 (1997)> =1997AJ....113...22G (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Photometry ; Morphology ; Radial velocities Abstract: Observational parameters which can be used for redshift-independent distance determination using the Tully-Fisher (TF) technique are given for 782 spiral galaxies in the fields of 24 clusters or groups. I band photometry for the full sample was either obtained by us or compiled from published literature. Rotational velocities are derived either from 21 cm spectra or optical emission line long-slit spectra, and converted to a homogeneous scale. In addition to presenting the data, a discussion of the various sources of error on TF parameters is introduced, and the criteria for the assignment of membership to each cluster are given.

Note to Name1: If the galaxy is listed in the UGC catalog, the UGC number is listed first; if not, the first listing corresponds to the author's internal coding number. Note to Name2: The second name is added with the following priority scheme: NGC or IC number; CGCG number in the form "field-number"; for southern galaxies, if and NGC or IC number is not available the ESO/Uppsala catalog name is given. Note to T: Morphological type code in the RC3 scheme, where 1 corresponds to Sa, 3 to Sb, 5 to Sc, etc. If the code is followed by a B, the galaxy disk has an identifiable bar. Note to Mem: c - galaxy is considered a bona fide cluster member g - galaxy is sufficiently removed from the cluster center that cluster membership cannot be safely assigned; the galaxy is, however, in the periphery of the cluster, at roughly the same redshift and it is a nearby supercluster member f - foreground galaxy b - background galaxy Note to e_log(Wcor): The uncertainty takes into account both measurement errors and uncertainties arising from the corrections. The value (11), for example is equivalent to ± 0.011. Note to Imag: Measure I band magnitude, extrapolated to infinity assuming that the surface brightness profile of the disk is well described by an exponential function; this value is sometimes adopted as an average of two or more measurements, as footnoted. Note to Icor: Apparent magnitude, to which k-term, galactic, and internal extinction corrections were applied. Note to Mcor: Absolute magnitude, computed assuming that the galaxy is at the distance indicated either by the cluster redshift, if the galaxy is a member, or by the galaxy redshift if not. Note to e_Mcor: The uncertainty on the magnitude is the sum in quadrature of the measurement errors and the estimate of the uncertainty in the corrections applied to the measured parameter. The error estimate does not include the uncertainty on the value of the distance.
