Identifying Galaxy Mergers In High Redshift Clusters Using The Hubble Space Telescope
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a photometric and spectroscopic study of merging galaxies within two recently discovered high redshift clusters at z ∼ 1.6 and z ∼ 2.0. We use imaging taken with the Hubble Space Telescope’s (HST) Wide Field Camera-3 (WFC3) in three filters: F105W, F125W, and F160W. Spectral data will be obtained from the 3D-HST survey taken with the WFC3 in two grisms: G102 in Field A and G141 in Field B. By combining our photometric measurements with the 3D-HST observations, we present a complete survey of potentially merging objects in two high redshift clusters.
