NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2005MNRAS.359..930B The CIDA-UCM-Yale shallow survey for emission-line galaxies Bongiovanni, A.; Bruzual, G.; Magris, G.; Gallego, J.; Garcia-Dabo, C. E.; Coppi, P.; Sabbey, C. Abstract. We present the CIDA-UCM-Yale (Centro de Investigaciones de Astronomia, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and Yale University) Survey (CUYS) for H{alpha}+[NII] 6549,6584Angstrom emission-line galaxies (ELGs) using objective-prism spectra. The most important properties of a catalogue with 427 entries and significant subsets are analysed. The complete sample contains 183 statistically confirmed ELGs in a sky area of 151 deg^2^ and redshift up to 0.14. We determine the parameters of the H{alpha} luminosity function using the H{alpha}+[NII] flux directly measured on the ELG spectra in this sample, and the star formation rate density derived is in agreement with values reported in the literature. Finally, we study the clustering properties of local star-forming galaxies relative to quiescent ones from different perspectives. We find that ELGs avoid dense regions of quiescent galaxies and we propose a power-law expression to parametrize the relation between star formation rate density and environment volume density of ELGs.
