Globular Clusters in Dense Clusters of Galaxies


Deep imaging data from the Keck II telescope are employed to study the globular cluster (GC) populations in the cores of six rich Abell clusters. The sample includes A754, A1644, A2124, A2147, A2151, and A2152 and covers the redshift range z = 0.035–0.066. These clusters also span a range in morphology from spiral-rich, irregular systems to centrally… (More)
