Maps of Dust Infrared Emission for Use in Estimation of Reddening and Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Foregrounds
We present a full-sky 100 μm map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA maps, we
The DEIMOS spectrograph for the Keck II Telescope: integration and testing
The DEIMOS spectrograph is a multi-object spectrograph being built for Keck II. DEIMOS was delivered in February 2002, became operational in May, and is now about three-quarters of the way through
A survey of galaxy redshifts. V. The two-point position and velocity correlations.
We describe the results of a study of the two-point correlations in the 14.5 m/sub B/ CfA redshift survey. We use the distance information provided by the redshifts to estimate the two-point spatial
The IRAS 1.2 Jy Survey: Redshift Data
We present the redshift data for a survey of galaxies selected from the data base of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS). This survey extends the 1.936 Jy sample of Strauss et al. (1992a) from
Fundamental Properties of Elliptical Galaxies
The global properties of elliptical galaxies, such as luminosity, radius, projected velocity dispersion, projected luminosity, etc., form a two-dimensional family. This 'fundamental plane' of
Extrapolation of Galactic Dust Emission at 100 Microns to Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Frequencies Using FIRAS
We present predicted full-sky maps of submillimeter and microwave emission from the diffuse interstellar dust in the Galaxy. These maps are extrapolated from the 100 μm emission and 100/240 μm flux
A redshift survey of IRAS galaxies. VII - The infrared and redshift data for the 1.936 Jansky sample
We present the data for a redshift survey of galaxies selected from the database of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS). The sample is flux limited to 1.936 Jy at 60 microns and covers 11.01
Science Objectives and Early Results of the DEEP2 Redshift Survey
The DEIMOS spectrograph has now been installed on the Keck-II telescope and commissioning is nearly complete. The DEEP2 Redshift Survey, which will take approximately 120 nights at the Keck
The DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey: Design, Observations, Data Reduction, and Redshifts
We describe the design and data analysis of the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey, the densest and largest high-precision redshift survey of galaxies at z ~ 1 completed to date. The survey was designed to
Deviations from the Local Hubble Flow. I. The Tip of the Red Giant Branch as a Distance Indicator
The properties of the velocity field in the local volume (cz < 550 km s-1) have been difficult to constrain because of a lack of a consistent set of galaxy distances. The sparse observations
