Field Galaxy Evolution Studies with an Optical Multicolor Deep-Sky Survey
We are investigating field galaxy evolution with the optical multiband survey of Osmer et al. (1995, in preparation; Hall et al. 1992, Bull. A.A.S., 24, 1136), which covers some 3000 sq. arcmin of sky with CCD photometry in six broad-band filters from 3000–10000Å, complete down to R~23. The sample contains some 9000 cataloged galaxies, of which 7000 have data in at least three colors.
