The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) will provide the data to support detailed investigations of the distribution of luminous and non-luminous matter in the Universe: a photometrically and astrometrically calibrated digital imaging survey of π steradians above about Galactic latitude 30◦ in five broad optical bands to a depth of g′ ∼ 23, and a spectroscopic(More)

This paper describes the Seventh Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), marking the completion of the original goals of the SDSS and the end of the phase known as SDSS-II. It includes 11,663 deg2 of imaging data, with most of the ∼2000 deg2 increment over the previous data release lying in regions of low Galactic latitude. The catalog contains(More)
The third generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III) took data from 2008 to 2014 using the original SDSS wide-field imager, the original and an upgraded multi-object fiber-fed optical spectrograph, a new near-infrared high-resolution spectrograph, and a novel optical interferometer. All the data from SDSS-III are now made public. In particular,(More)
This paper describes the Sixth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.With this data release, the imaging of the northern Galactic cap is now complete. The survey contains images and parameters of roughly 287 million objects over 9583 deg, including scans over a large range of Galactic latitudes and longitudes. The survey also includes 1.27 million(More)
We present the large-scale correlation function measured from a spectroscopic sample of 46,748 luminous red galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The survey region covers 0.72 h 3 Gpc over 3816 deg and 0:16 < z < 0:47, making it the best sample yet for the study of large-scale structure. We find a well-detected peak in the correlation function at 100(More)
A Holocene record of climate, Ž re and vegetation regimes was reconstructed for Siesta Lake, Yosemite National Park, California, using fossil pollen and charcoal from lake sediments. These reconstructions were generated to provide a long-term perspective on drought in the Sierra Nevada. The sedimentary record is in agreement with other long-term records of(More)
BACKGROUND The phased implementation of the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) began in September 2002. The NCSP offers opportunistic screening for chlamydia to women and men under 25 years of age attending clinical and non-clinical screening venues using non-invasive urine or vulvo-vaginal swab samples tested via nucleic acid amplification. This(More)
This paper describes the Fifth Data Release (DR5) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). DR5 includes all survey quality data taken through June 2005 and represents the completion of the SDSS-I project (whose successor, SDSSII will continue through mid-2008). It includes five-band photometric data for 217 million objects selected over 8000 deg, and(More)
This paper describes the fourth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), including all survey-quality data taken through June 2004. The data release includes five-band photometric data for 180 million objects selected over 6670 deg, and 673,280 spectra of galaxies, quasars, and stars selected from 4783 deg of that imaging data using the standard(More)
