The 6dF Galaxy Survey: final redshift release (DR3) and southern large-scale structures
We report the final redshift release of the 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS), a combined redshift and peculiar velocity survey over the southern sky (|b| > 10°). Its 136 304 spectra have yielded 110 256 new
The 6dF Galaxy Survey: baryon acoustic oscillations and the local Hubble constant
We analyse the large-scale correlation function of the 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) and detect a baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) signal at 105h −1 Mpc. The 6dFGS BAO detection allows us to constrain
The RAVE survey: constraining the local Galactic escape speed
New constraints on the local escape speed of the Galaxy are reported, finding that the escape velocity lies within the range 498 <v(esc) <608 km s (-1) (90 per cent confidence), with a median likelihood of 544 km s(-1).
The 6dF Galaxy Survey: Samples, observational techniques and the first data release
The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) aims to measure the redshifts of around 150 000 galaxies, and the peculiar velocities of a 15 000-member subsample, over almost the entire southern sky. When complete,
Local stellar kinematics from RAVE data - I. Local standard of rest
We analyze a sample of 82850 stars from the RAVE survey, with well-determined velocities and stellar parameters, to isolate a sample of 18026 high-probability thin-disc dwarfs within 600 pc of the
The RAVE survey : the Galactic escape speed and the mass of the Milky Way
We made new estimates of the Galactic escape speed at various Galactocentric radii using the latest data release of the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE DR4). Compared to previous studies we have a
The radial velocity experiment (RAVE): First data release
The first data release of the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) is presented and it is demonstrated that the radial velocities derived for the first data set do not show any systematic trend with color or signal-to-noise ratio.
The AAO/UKST SuperCOSMOS Hα survey
The UK Schmidt Telescope (UKST) of the Anglo-Australian Observatory completed a narrowband Ha plus [N II] 6548, 6584-A survey of the Southern Galactic Plane and Magellanic Clouds in late 2003. The
Constraining the Galaxy's dark halo with RAVE stars
We use the kinematics of ∼200000 giant stars that lie within ∼1.5kpc of the plane to measure the vertical profile of mass density near the Sun. We find that the dark mass contained within the
The dipole anisotropy of the 2 Micron All-Sky Redshift Survey
We estimate the acceleration on the Local Group (LG) from the 2 Micron All-Sky Redshift Survey (2MRS). The sample used includes about 23 200 galaxies with extinction-corrected magnitudes brighter
