EMIR Guaranteed Time - Reserved Targets

GALEP programme

ABSTRACT

To examine spectroscopically a representative selection of sources being discovered deep in the Galaxy along a number of different lines of sight. The majority of the objects lie very close to the Galactic Plane and high extinction means that these objects are impossible to observe at visible wavelengths and so the near IR has to be used.

TARGETS

Object types: RGBs, AGBs

Coordinates:   l = 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32 deg.

                       |b| ~ area: 15x15 arcmin

Obs. Mode:   LS - HK

TARGETS

Coordinates:   l = [12 : 90] deg.

                       -1 < b < 2 deg.

Obs. Mode:   MOS - H, K

GOYA survey

ABSTRACT

GOYA will survey spectroscopically the galaxy population at intermediate redshifts (0.3 < z < 4) using both the long-slit and Multi-object spectroscopy of EMIR in the JHK bands. GOYA will also study the first high-redshift (z > 4) galaxies in these fields to connect the very early universe with the intermediate redshift epoch. Cosmological fields with the very much needed ancillary data from both ground-based telescopes and HST will be observed.

AGN Galaxies

ABSTRACT

To study of the dynamics and stellar populations of the nuclear regions in AGN galaxies, with the aim of investigating the most probable mechanisms to trigger activity. We plan to estimate black hole masses, to determine central kinematic structures, such as disks, bars, etc. eventually responsible for the the fueling of the central black hole and host galaxy properties through the analysis of stellar populations.

TARGETS

Target Name RA(2000) Dec(2000)
NGC2841 09 22 02.63 +50 58 35.5
NGC3031 09 55 33.17 +69 03 55.1
NGC4501 12 31 59.16 +14 25 13.4
