The Marseille Schmidt survey for active star-forming galaxies. I. Data on 92 emission line objects in two fields.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present data from a moderately deep spectroscopic Schmidt survey (Blim = 17.5) of ``active galaxies'' selected by the presence of emission lines in their spectra and/or their UV excess. The redshift, magnitudes, color and diameter reduction methods have been discussed in a previous paper. Here we explain the emission line equivalent width determination method. 92 emission line objects have been found in two adjacent fields (approximately 50°2) in the direction of the southern extension of the Virgo cluster. We give a catalog containing positions, photographic R and B magnitudes, U-R colors, effective diameters, redshifts, equivalent widths and intensity ratios of the [OIII]λλ4959,5007, Hβ and [OII]λ3727 emission lines. On these fields, we evaluate the completeness limit of the survey at a pseudo B magnitude value of 15.7. A more elaborate astrophysical analysis will appear in a forthcoming paper.
