Using some of the most detailed measurements to date, our FourStar Galaxy Evolution Survey (ZFOURGE) has charted the rise and fall of galaxies across 90 percent of cosmic history. The complete results were publicly
unveiled today and all survey data are released.
ZFOURGE was conducted using the FourStar imager (Persson et al. 2013) on the 6.5m Magellan Baade telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. The use of medium-band filters in the near-IR (van Dokkum et al. 2009) allows for more accurate sampling of wavelengths and improved photometric redshifts at 1 < z < 4 than possible with broadband filters alone. The survey covers parts of the CANDELS GOODS-S, COSMOS, and UDS fields.
The data release can downloaded here: ZFOURGE Data Release. The release includes catalogs, redshifts, stellar masses, and all images. The release also includes a web interface to visually explore the catalog objects. The release is described in detail in Straatman et al. (2016).
