This is the second in a series of papers presenting results from the SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey. In our first paper we provided 850µm flux densities for 104 galaxies selected from the IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample and we found that the 60, 100µm (IRAS) and 850µm (SCUBA) fluxes could be adequately fitted by emission from dust at a single temperature. In(More)
On five K ′-band (2.1µm) Omega camera images, covering a total of 162.2 arcmin 2 to a completeness limit K ′ ≃ 19.5, we investigate (i) the clustering environment of a sample of 5 radio galaxies at 0.7 ≤ z ≤ 0.8 and (ii) the galaxy angular correlation function, ω(θ). Applying two methods – counting galaxies within 1.5 arcmin of each radio galaxy, and using(More)
The Herschel ATLAS is the largest open-time key project that will be carried out on the Herschel Space Observatory. It will survey 510 square degrees of the extragalactic sky, four times larger than all the other Herschel surveys combined, in five far-infrared and submillimetre bands. We describe the survey, the complementary multi-wavelength datasets that(More)
This is the first of a series of papers presenting results from the SCUBA Local Universe Galaxy Survey (SLUGS), the first statistical survey of the submillimetre properties of the local universe. As the initial part of this survey, we have used the SCUBA camera on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope to observe 104 galaxies from the IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample.(More)
Large amounts of dust (>10(8)M(o)) have recently been discovered in high-redshift quasars and galaxies corresponding to a time when the Universe was less than one-tenth of its present age. The stellar winds produced by stars in the late stages of their evolution (on the asymptotic giant branch of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram) are thought to be the main(More)
EMU is a wide-field radio continuum survey planned for the new Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope. The primary goal of EMU is to make a deep (rms ∼ 10 µJy/beam) radio continuum survey of the entire Southern Sky at 1.3 GHz, extending as far North as +30 • declination, with a resolution of 10 arcsec. EMU is expected to detect and(More)
The old, red stars that constitute the bulges of galaxies, and the massive black holes at their centres, are the relics of a period in cosmic history when galaxies formed stars at remarkable rates and active galactic nuclei (AGN) shone brightly as a result of accretion onto black holes. It is widely suspected, but unproved, that the tight correlation(More)
The extragalactic background light at far-infrared wavelengths comes from optically faint, dusty, star-forming galaxies in the Universe with star formation rates of a few hundred solar masses per year. These faint, submillimetre galaxies are challenging to study individually because of the relatively poor spatial resolution of far-infrared telescopes.(More)
