Substructure in clusters containing Wide-Angle-Tailed radio galaxies. I. New redshifts.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present new redshifts and positions for 635 galaxies in nine rich clusters containing wide-angle tailed (WAT) radio galaxies. Combined with existing data, we now have a sample of 18 WAT-containing clusters with more than 10 redshifts. This sample contains a substantial portion of the WAT clusters in the VLA 20 cm survey of Abell clusters, including 75% of WAT clusters in the complete survey (z≤0.09), and 20% of WAT clusters with z>0.09. It is a representative sample, which should not contain biases other than selection by radio morphology. We graphically present the new data using histograms and sky maps. A semiautomated procedure is used to search for emission lines in the spectra in order to add and verify galaxy redshifts. We find that the average apparent fraction of emission-line galaxies is about 9% in both the clusters and the field. We investigate the magnitude completeness of our redshift surveys with CCD data for a test case, Abell 690. This case indicates that our galaxy target lists are deeper than the detection limit of a typical MX exposure, and they are 82% complete down to R=19.0. The importance of the uniformity of the placement of fibers on targets is posited, and we evaluate this in our data sets. We find some cases of nonuniformities which may influence dynamical analyses. A second paper will use this database to look for correlations between the WAT radio morphology and the cluster's dynamical state.
