2014ApJS..211...21E Spectroscopic Redshifts of Galaxies within the Frontier Fields Ebeling, Harald; Ma, Cheng-Jiun; Barrett, Elizabeth Abstract. We present a catalog of 1921 spectroscopic redshifts measured in the fields of the massive galaxy clusters MACSJ0416.1-2403 (z = 0.397), MACSJ0717.5+3745 (z = 0.546), and MACSJ1149.5+2223 (z = 0.544), i.e., three of the four clusters selected by Space Telescope Science Institute as the targets of the Frontier Fields (FFs) initiative for studies of the distant Universe via gravitational lensing. Compiled in the course of the Massive Cluster Survey project (MACS) that detected the FF clusters, this catalog is provided to the community for three purposes: (1) to allow the identification of cluster members for studies of the galaxy population of these extreme systems, (2) to facilitate the removal of unlensed galaxies and thus reduce shear dilution in weak-lensing analyses, and (3) to improve the calibration of photometric redshifts based on both ground- and spacebased observations of the FF clusters. Key words: galaxies: clusters: individual: MACSJ0416.1--2403 MACSJ0717.5+3745 MACSJ1149.5+2223, galaxies: distances and redshifts
