GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs) is a large-area (800 arcmin2) two-color (F606W and F850LP) imaging survey with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble Space Telescope. Centered on the Chandra Deep Field-South, it covers an area of ~28' × 28', or about 120 Hubble Deep Field areas, to a depth of mAB(F606W) = 28.3(5 σ) and mAB(F850LP) = 27.1(5 σ) for compact sources. In its central ~1/4, GEMS incorporates ACS imaging from the GOODS project. Focusing on the redshift range 0… 
GEMS: The Surface Brightness and Surface Mass Density Evolution of Disk Galaxies
We combine HST imaging from the GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs) survey with photometric redshifts from COMBO-17 to explore the evolution of disk-dominated galaxies since z 1.1. The
We combine high-resolution images from GEMS with redshifts and spectral energy distributions from COMBO-17 to explore the morphological types of galaxies that dominate the z ~ 0.7 UV luminosity
Dry Mergers in GEMS: The Dynamical Evolution of Massive Early-Type Galaxies
We have used the 28' × 28' Hubble Space Telescope image mosaic from the GEMS (Galaxy Evolution from Morphology and SEDs) survey in conjunction with the COMBO-17 photometric redshift survey to
FERENGI: Redshifting Galaxies from SDSS to GEMS, STAGES, and COSMOS
We describe the creation of a set of artificially "redshifted" galaxies in the range 0.1 < z < 1.1 using a set of ~100 SDSS low-redshift (v < 7000 km s−1) images as input. The intention is to
Galaxy Zoo: morphological classifications for 120 000 galaxies in HST legacy imaging
We present the data release paper for the Galaxy Zoo: Hubble (GZH) project. This is the third phase in a large effort to measure reliable, detailed morphologies of galaxies by using crowdsourced
Color, Structure, and Star Formation History of Dwarf Galaxies over the Last ~3 Gyr with GEMS and SDSS
We present a study of the colors, structural properties, and star formation histories for a sample of ~1600 dwarfs over look-back times of ~3 Gyr (z = 0.002-0.25). The sample consists of 401 distant
STAGES: the Space Telescope A901/2 Galaxy Evolution Survey
We present an overview of the Space Telescope A901/2 Galaxy Evolution Survey (STAGES). STAGES is a multiwavelength project designed to probe physical drivers of galaxy evolution across a wide range
We present the results from a study of the host galaxies of 15 optically selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with 0.5 < z < 1.1 from the Galaxy Evolution from Morphology and SEDs project (GEMS).
Ultraviolet light from young stars in gems quasar host galaxies at 1.8 < z < 2.75
We have performed Hubble Space Telescope imaging of a sample of 23 high-redshift (1.8 < z < 2.75) active galactic nuclei (AGNs), drawn from the COMBO-17 survey. The sample contains moderately
Stellar Population Diagnostics of Elliptical Galaxy Formation
Major progress has been achieved in recent years in mapping the properties of passively-evolving, early-type galaxies (ETG) from the local universe all the way to redshift ∼2. Here, age and

The size evolution of high-redshift galaxies
Hubble Space Telescope images of high-redshift galaxies selected via color and photometric redshifts are used to examine the size and axial ratio distribution of galaxies as a function of redshift at
