2003ApJS..146..267M Radio-selected Galaxies in Very Rich Clusters at z <= 0.25. I. Multiwavelength Observations and Data Reduction Techniques G. E. Morrison, F. N. Owen, M. J. Ledlow, W. C. Keel J. M. Hill, W. Voges, and T. Herter Received 2000 September 5; accepted 2002 December 5 ABSTRACT Radio observations were used to detect the "active" galaxy population within rich clusters of galaxies in a nonbiased manner that is not plagued by dust extinction or the K-correction. We present wide-field radio, optical (imaging and spectroscopy), and ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) X-ray data for a sample of 30 very rich Abell (R >= 2) clusters with z <= 0.25. The VLA radio data samples the ultrafaint radio (L_1.4_ >= 2 x 10^22^ W Hz^-1^) galaxy population within these extremely rich clusters for galaxies with M_R_ <= -21. This is the largest sample of low-luminosity 20 cm radio galaxies within rich Abell clusters collected to date. The radio-selected galaxy sample represents the starburst (star formation rate >=5 M_sun_ yr^-1^) and active galactic nuclei populations contained within each cluster. Archival and newly acquired redshifts were used to verify cluster membership for most (~95%) of the optical identifications. Thus, we can identify all the starbursting galaxies within these clusters, regardless of the level of dust obscuration that would affect these galaxies being identified from their optical signature. Cluster sample selection, observations, and data reduction techniques for all wavelengths are discussed.
