We perform a kinematic analysis of galaxies at z ~ 2 in the COSMOS legacy field using near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy from Keck/MOSFIRE as part of the ZFIRE survey. Our sample consists of 75 Ks-band selected star-forming galaxies from the ZFOURGE survey with stellar masses ranging from log(M */M &sun;) = 9.0--11.0, 28 of which are members of a known overdensity at z = 2.095. We measure Halpha emission-line integrated velocity dispersions (sigma int) from 50 to 230 km s-1, consistent with other...[Show more]
