1991ApJS...75..935d SOUTHERN SKY REDSHIFT SURVEY: THE CATALOG L. NICOLACI DA COSTA AND PAULO S. PELLEGRINI Observatorio Nacional MARC DAVIS University of California, Berkeley AVERY MEIKSIN Space Telescope Science Institute, Johns Hopkins University WALLACE L. W. SARGENT California Institute of Technology AND JOHN L. TONRY Massachusetts Institute of Technology Received 1990 July 10; accepted 1990 September 11 ABSTRACT In this paper we present the catalog of radial velocities for galaxies which comprise the diameter-limited sample of the Southern Sky Redshift Survey. It consolidates the data of observations carried out at the Las Campanas Observatory, Observatorio Nacional, and South African Astronomical Observatory. The criteria used for the sample selection are described, as well as the observational procedures and the technique utilized to obtain the final radial velocities. The intercomparison between radial velocity measurements from different telescopes indicates that the final data base is fairly homogeneous with a typical error of ~40 km s^-1^. The sample is at present 90% complete, and the missing galaxies are predominantly objects with very low surface brightness for which it is very difficult to obtain optical redshifts. Subject heading: galaxies: redshifts
