Welcome to the collaborative wiki of EDGE (Extragalactic Database for Galaxy Evolution) and CALIFA surveys. All of the secure access is now on our EDGE twiki

Survey Descriptions

Milestones

  • Dec, 2014 : E-array CARMA observations are complete (177 galaxies).
  • April 3, 2015: D-array CARMA observations are complete (125 galaxies).
  • April 9, 2015: First face-to-face meeting at Maryland.
  • May 11, 2015: The 2nd version (v2) of CO data cubes are released, which uses a smoothed mask based on the original cubes (v1) as a deconvolution region.
  • Jul 15, 2015: telecon: MOU signed, all EDGE data nearly reduced

Telecon Notes

  • 2015, May 12: Preparing the MoU for EDGE and CALIFA collaborations.
  • 2015, May 19: Discussing the cross-correlation results to refine the CALIFA astrometry. Comparing flux of v2 vs v1 data cubes: v2 recovers slightly more flux than v1. For survey publication, we only need the total flux from moment-0 maps, while for comparison with archival data, we need to convolve it with the beam of single dish telescope.
  • 2015, May 26: MoU is under review by CALIFA board members. Considering velocity range as parameter to make moment-0 mask. Discussing depletion time vs metallicity plot. The metallicity is calculated from emission lines maps using prescriptions by Kewley & Dopita (2002). So far, no correlation with metallicity was seen. The depletion time looks constant with a value of ~ 1 Gyr.

Meetings

Outcomes from April 2015 meeting at Maryland:

Papers:

  • Survey paper, science result will be analysis of t_dep vs. Z, maybe multi-parameter relations (Alberto)
  • Study of 12CO/13CO ratios (Yixian/Tony) 8-12M
  • T_dep in centers (Dyas/Leo) 12M
  • Why do not all galaxies have CO? (Leo)
  • Dispersion in KS Law (Lucas/Helmut/Glenn) 12M
  • NGC7738 "EDGE test concept" observations (Lucas/Helmut) 6-8M
  • Comparison of CO/Ha point-by-point velocities (Glenn)
  • T_dep vs. t_dyn (Erik) 6-8M
  • Quantitative CO structure: radial parameters, asymmetries, Gini, flocculent, arms etc (Stuart) 12M
  • CO concentrations in centers and links with bar (Karin)
  • Kinematic misalignments (Glenn)
  • SFE today vs. SFH/Moster Law (Erik)
  • Fraction of "diffuse" CO gas (Eve/Adam)
  • AGN feeding in EDGE (Stuart/Richard)
  • Flux recovery for interferometer (Yixian/Tony)
  • T_dep vs. BPT: somebody should try the plot to see if this is interesting
  • "ISM predictor" for ISM mass subtraction: longer term

Tasks

  • Contacts in CALIFA for specialized data products: SFHs, Sigma_stars, etc (Glenn)
  • Low/high ionization velocity fields from Gandalf fitting/Ha only velocities (Glenn)
  • Galaxy parameters from surface photometry fitting: PA, incl, etc (Glenn)
  • Improving CLEANing and masking with rotation curves/Ha velocity fields (Tony/Alberto/Stuart/Peter)
  • Mm-continuum images using full passband for EDGE need to be created (Tony)
  • Calibrated unWISE data (Karin)
  • E array only data: mostly non-detections, but it'd be useful to have the limits/do stacking (Tony)
  • Single dish CO 1-0 measurements to assess flux recovery (Helmut)
  • Integrated CO luminosities with errors (?)
  • Metallicity of gas: need to look at CALIFA strong line results, produce for a few calibrations (?)
  • CO rotation curves (Peter/Alberto/Tony)
  • Über-database on 1" pixels for cross-correlations (Adam/Erik)
