Using the refurbished 305 m Arecibo Gregorian Telescope, we detected 43 low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies from the 1997 catalog of ONeil, Bothun, & Cornell. The detected galaxies range from 22.0 mag mag arcsec~2, with colors ranging from the blue through the —rst arcsec~2 " k B (0) " 25.0 detection of very red LSB galaxies (B(V \( 0.7 to 1.7). The of these galaxies ranges from M HI /L B 0.1¨50 showing this sample to range from very gas poor to possibly the most gas-rich galaxies M _ /L _… 
Spectroscopy of low surface brightness galaxies with the Hobby-Eberly Telescope
We have obtained low-resolution spectra of 19 red and blue low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies, using the Marcario Low-Resolution Spectrograph on the 9.2 m Hobby-Eberly Telescope. These galaxies
A multi-wavelength study is being made of 4,000 Low Surface Brightness (LSB) galaxies detected in the 2MASS allsky near-infrared survey. They have similar central K-band surface brightness as
High and Low Surface Brightness Galaxies in the Local Universe. V. Optical and H I Properties
Using optical spectra of the nuclei of 250 galaxies chosen from the Automated Plate Measuring Facility (APM) survey of UK Schmidt plates, we derive synthetic B-V and V-R colors, estimates of
Low Surface Brightness Galaxies and the Tully-Fisher Relation
We present Very Large Array (VLA) H I imaging of four low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies ([OBC97] P01-3, [OBC97] C06-1, [OBC97] C04-1, [OBC97] C04-2), which were thought to strongly deviate from
Further Discoveries of 12CO in Low Surface Brightness Galaxies
Using the IRAM 30 m telescope we have obtained seven new, deep CO J(1-0) and J(2-1) observations of low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies. Five of the galaxies have no CO detected to extremely low
Very Thin Disc Galaxies in The SDSS Catalog of Edge-on Galaxies
We study the properties of galaxies with very thin discs using a sample of 85 objects whose stellar disc radial-to-vertical scale ratio determined from photometric decomposition, exceeds nine. We
Long-slit Spectroscopy of Edge-on Low Surface Brightness Galaxies
We present long-slit optical spectra of 12 edge-on low surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs) positioned along their major axes. After performing reddening corrections for the emission-line fluxes
Star formation in galaxies with large lower surface brightness disks
We present B, R, and H? imaging data of 19 large disk galaxies whose properties are intermediate between classical low surface brightness galaxies and ordinary high surface brightness galaxies. We
Low Surface Brightness Galaxy catalogue selected from the α.40-SDSS DR7 Survey and Tully–Fisher relation
We present a catalogue of an HI-selected sample of 1129 low surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs) searched from the alpha.40-SDSS DR7 survey. This sample, consisting of various types of galaxies in
The Dwarf Galaxy Population of the Dorado Group Down to MV ≈ −11*
We present V and I CCD photometry of suspected low surface brightness dwarf galaxies detected in a survey covering ~2.4 deg2 around the central region of the Dorado group of galaxies. The low surface


The Tully-Fisher relation for low surface brightness galaxies: implications for galaxy evolution
We present the B-band Tully-Fisher relation for low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies. These LSB galaxies follow the same Tully-Fisher relation as normal spiral galaxies. This implies that the
The Contribution of Low Surface-Brightness Galaxies to Faint Galaxy Counts
Low Surface-Brightness (LSB) galaxies are severely underrepresented in surveys used to define the local luminosity function (LF), but could it in principle be detected in deep surveys. To explore the
Low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies are galaxies dominated by an exponential disc whose central surface brightness is much fainter than the value of mu(B)(0) = 21.65 +/- 0.30 mag arcsec(-2) found
The oxygen abundances in the \HII regions of a sample of low surface brightness (LSB) disk galaxies are presented. In general, LSB galaxies are found to be metal poor ($Z < {1 \over 3} Z\solar$).
The H I Mass Function of Galaxies from a Deep Survey in the 21 Centimeter Line
The H I mass function (HIMF) for galaxies in the local universe is constructed from the results of the Arecibo H I Strip Survey, a blind extragalactic survey in the 21 cm line. The survey, consisting

We use a sample of about 340 low surface brightness (LSB) disk galaxies with measured redshifts in combination with the Center for Astrophysics redshift survey to test the hypothesis that LSB

Star formation thresholds in low surface brightness galaxies
Low Surface Brightness (LSB) galaxies appear to have low star formation rates despite their often quite normal H I contents as judged from global H I properties such as M(H I)/L and M(H I)/M(T)
