Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): The input catalogue and star-galaxy separation
We describe the spectroscopic target selection for the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. The input catalogue is drawn from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS). The initial aim is to measure redshifts for galaxies in three 4° × 12° regions at 9, 12 and 14.5 h, on the celestial equator, with magnitude selections r<19.4, z<18.2 and KAB < 17.6 over all three regions, and r<19.8 in the 12-h region. The target density is 1080 deg-2 in the 12-h region...[Show more]
