We have used Galaxy Zoo DECaLS (GZD) to study strong and weak bars in disc galaxies. Out of the 314 000 galaxies in GZD, we created a volume-limited sample (0.01 < z < 0.05, Mr < − 18.96) which contains 1867 galaxies with reliable volunteer bar classifications in the ALFALFA footprint. In keeping with previous Galaxy Zoo surveys (such as GZ2), the morphological classifications from GZD agree well with previous morphological surveys. GZD considers galaxies to either have a strong bar (15.5 per… 
Galaxy Zoo: 3D – crowdsourced bar, spiral, and foreground star masks for MaNGA target galaxies
The challenge of consistent identification of internal structure in galaxies – in particular disc galaxy components like spiral arms, bars, and bulges – has hindered our ability to study the
SDSS-IV MaNGA: Understanding Ionized Gas Turbulence Using Integral Field Spectroscopy of 4500 Star-forming Disk Galaxies
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey MaNGA program has now obtained integral field spectroscopy for over 10,000 galaxies in the nearby universe. We use the final MaNGA data release DR17 to study the
The ALMaQUEST Survey. VII. Star Formation Scaling Relations of Green Valley Galaxies
We utilize the ALMA-MaNGA QUEnch and STar formation (ALMaQUEST) survey to investigate the kpc-scale scaling relations, presented as the resolved star-forming MS (rSFMS: ΣSFR versus Σ*), the resolved


Galaxy Zoo:bars in disc galaxies
We present first results from Galaxy Zoo 2, the second phase of the highly successful Galaxy Zoo project ( Using a volume-limited sample of 13 665 disc galaxies (0.01 < z <
Galaxy Zoo: bar lengths in local disc galaxies★: Galaxy Zoo: bar lengths in nearby disc galaxies
We present an analysis of bar length measurements of 3150 local galaxies in a volume-limited sample of low-redshift (z < 0.06) disc galaxies. Barred galaxies were initially selected from the Galaxy
Galaxy Zoo: the environmental dependence of bars and bulges in disc galaxies
We present an analysis of the environmental dependence of bars and bulges in disc galaxies, using a volume-limited catalogue of 15 810 galaxies at z < 0.06 from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey with
The H i morphology and stellar properties of strongly barred galaxies: support for bar quenching in massive spirals
Galactic bars are able to affect the evolution of galaxies by redistributing their gas, possibly contributing to the cessation of star formation. Several recent works point to ‘bar quenching’
Galaxy Zoo:CANDELS barred discs and bar fractions
The formation of bars in disk galaxies is a tracer of the dynamical maturity of thepopulation. Previous studies have found that the incidence of bars in disks decreasesfrom the local Universe to z ∼
Galaxy Zoo:observing secular evolution through bars
In this paper, we use the Galaxy Zoo 2 data set to study the behavior of bars in disk galaxies as a function of specific star formation rate (SSFR) and bulge prominence. Our sample consists of 13,295
Barred Galaxies in the IllustrisTNG Simulation
Almost two-thirds of disk galaxies in the local universe host bars, which serve as important drivers of secular evolutionary processes. While cosmological simulations are powerful tools to study the
Bars in Disk-dominated and Bulge-dominated Galaxies at z ~ 0: New Insights from ~3600 SDSS Galaxies
We present a study of large-scale bars in the local universe, based on a large sample of 3692 galaxies, with 18.5 ≤ Mg < − 22.0 mag and redshift 0.01 ≤ z < 0.03, drawn from the Sloan Digitized Sky
Galaxy Zoo: finding offset discs and bars in SDSS galaxies
We use multiwavelength Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) images and Galaxy Zoo morphologies to identify a sample of ∼270 late-type galaxies with an off-centre bar. We measure offsets in the range
Galaxy Zoo: secular evolution of barred galaxies from structural decomposition of multiband images
We present the results of two-component (disc+bar) and three-component (disc+bar+bulge) multiwavelength 2D photometric decompositions of barred galaxies in five Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) bands
