Galaxy Zoo: morphologies derived from visual inspection of galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
In order to understand the formation and subsequent evolution of galaxies one must first distinguish between the two main morphological classes of massive systems: spirals and early-type systems.Expand
Galaxy Zoo Green Peas: discovery of a class of compact extremely star-forming galaxies
We investigate a class of rapidly growing emission line galaxies, known as “Green Peas,” first noted by volunteers in the Galaxy Zoo project because of their peculiar bright green colour and smallExpand
Environment and self-regulation in galaxy formation
The environment is known to affect the formation and evolution of galaxies considerably best visible through the well-known morphology-density relationship. It is less clear, though, whether theExpand
Lyα-Emitting Galaxies at z = 3.1: L* Progenitors Experiencing Rapid Star Formation*
We studied the clustering properties and multiwavelength spectral energy distributions of a complete sample of 162 Lyα-emitting (LAE) galaxies at z 3.1 discovered in deep narrowband MUSYC imaging ofExpand
Galaxy Zoo 1: data release of morphological classifications for nearly 900 000 galaxies
Morphology is a powerful indicator of a galaxy’s dynamical and merger history. It is strongly correlated with many physical parameters, including mass, star formation history and the distribution ofExpand
The green valley is a red herring: Galaxy Zoo reveals two evolutionary pathways towards quenching of star formation in early-and late-type galaxies
We use SDSS+GALEX+Galaxy Zoo data to study the quenching of star formation in low-redshift galaxies. We show that the green valley between the blue cloud of star-forming galaxies and the red sequenceExpand
The Multiwavelength Survey by Yale–Chile (MUSYC): Deep Medium-band Optical Imaging and High-quality 32-band Photometric Redshifts in the ECDF-S
We present deep optical 18-medium-band photometry from the Subaru telescope over the ~30' × 30' Extended Chandra Deep Field-South, as part of the Multiwavelength Survey by Yale-Chile (MUSYC). ThisExpand
Galaxy Zoo: Exploring the Motivations of Citizen Science Volunteers.
The Galaxy Zoo citizen science website invites anyone with an Internet connection to participate in research by classifying galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. As of April 2009, more thanExpand
