  • We study dust attenuation and stellar mass of z ~ 0.6 star-forming galaxies using new SWIRE observations in IR and GALEX observations in UV. Two samples are selected from the SWIRE and GALEX source catalogs in the SWIRE/GALEX field ELAIS-N1-00 (Ω = 0.8 deg^2). The UV-selected sample has 600 galaxies with photometric redshift (hereafter photo-z) 0.5 ≤ z ≤ 0.7 and NUV ≤ 23.5 (corresponding to L_(FUV) ≥ 10^(9.6) L_☉). The IR-selected sample contains 430 galaxies with f_(24 μm) ≥ 0.2 mJy (L_(dust… CONTINUE READING
