1988AJ.....95.1629M [O III] EMISSION IN TWO MAGNITUDE-LIMITED FIELD-GALAXY SURVEYS J. WARD MOODY Institute for Astrophysics, The University of New Mexico, 800 Yale Boulevard N.E., Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131 and Department of Physics, Weber State College, Ogden, Utah 84408-2508 ROBERT P. KIRSHNER Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, MS-19, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138 Received 7 December 1987; revised 18 February 1988 ABSTRACT We present emission-line strengths for 394 galaxies from the field-galaxy redshift surveys of Kirshner, Oemler, and Schechter (1978) and Kirshner et al. (1983) as part of a study of the nature of field and void galaxies. These data are 95% complete in their coverage of the [O III] {lambda}{lambda}5007, 4959 emission lines. We find that 8.8% +/- 1.5% of a J magnitude-limited data set have [O III] {lambda}5007 emission equivalent widths greater than 10 A. There is no evidence that the spatial distribution of emission-line galaxies in each field differs from that of galaxies without emission. However, there is a significant increase in the fraction of galaxies with strong [O III] emission in the southern fields of the Kirshner, Oemler, and Schechter (1978) survey as compared with the other survey fields. Our results are consistent with the conclusion that the fraction of galaxies with emission is larger in the Bootes void than in the general field, but tighter constraints on the void normal galaxy population are needed to improve the statistics.
