Table information for 'vlastripe82.stripe82'

General

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description:

This is a high-resolution radio survey of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Southern Equatorial Stripe, a.k.a. Stripe 82. This 1.4 GHz survey was conducted with the Very Large Array (VLA) primarily in the A-configuration, with supplemental B-configuration data to increase sensitivity to extended structure. The survey has an angular resolution of 1.''8 and achieves a median rms noise of 52 μJy per beam over 92 deg^2. The catalog contains 17,969 isolated radio components, for an overall source density of ∼195 sources/deg^2. See also J.A. Hodge et al, 2011AJ....142....3H .
