Utilizing the SDSS-DR13 spectroscopic dataset, we create a new publicly-available catalog of 1,870 galaxy clusters (GalWeight cluster catalog, $\mathtt{GalWCat19}$) and a corresponding catalog of 38,536 identified member galaxies. The clusters are identified from overdensities in redshift-phase space. The GalWeight technique introduced in Abdullah, Wilson and Klypin (AWK18) is then applied to identify cluster members. The completeness of the cluster catalog ($\mathtt{GalWCat19}$) and the… Expand
