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)
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)
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)
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)

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)
We report on the sensitivity of SPIRE photometers on the Herschel Space Observatory. Specifically, we measure the confusion noise from observations taken during the Science Demonstration Phase of the Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey. Confusion noise is defined to be the spatial variation of the sky intensity in the limit of infinite integration(More)
A census of metals at high and low redshift and the connection between submillimetre sources and spheroid formation. ABSTRACT Deep surveys in many wavebands have shown that the rate at which stars were forming was at least a factor of 10 higher at redshifts > 1 than today. Heavy elements ('metals') are produced by stars, and the star formation history(More)

We study the dust properties of galaxies in the redshift range 0.1 z 2.8 observed by the Herschel Space Observatory in the field of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey-North as part of PEP and HerMES key programmes. Infrared (IR) luminosity (L IR) and dust temperature (T dust) of galaxies are derived from the spectral energy distribution (SED) fit(More)
