GAMA/H-ATLAS: Common star formation rate indicators and their dependence on galaxy physical parameters

Wang, L.; Norberg, P; Gunawardhana, M; da Cunha, Elisabete; Bland-Hawthorn, Joss; Brough, Sarah; Dunne, L; Eales, S; Grootes, M.W.; Lacey, Cedric G; Loveday, Jon


We compare common star formation rate (SFR) indicators in the local Universe in the Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) equatorial fields (∼160 deg2), using ultraviolet (UV) photometry from GALEX, far-infrared and sub-millimetre (sub-mm) photometry from Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey, and Hα spectroscopy from the GAMA survey. With a high-quality sample of 745 galaxies (median redshift 〈z〉 = 0.08), we consider three SFR tracers: UV luminosity corrected for dust attenuation using...[Show more]
