2015ApJS..221...13J The ACS Fornax Cluster Survey. XI. Catalog of Globular Cluster Candidates Jordan, Andres; Peng, Eric W.; Blakeslee, John P.; Cote, Patrick; Eyheramendy, Susana; Ferrarese, Laura Abstract. We present catalogs of globular cluster (GC) candidates for 43 galaxies from the ACS Fornax Cluster survey, a program designed to carry out imaging of early-type members of the Fornax cluster using the Advanded Camera for Surveys (ACS) on board the Hubble Space Telescope. The procedure to select bona fide GC candidates from the full list of detections is based on model-based clustering methods, similar to those adopted for a survey of 100 galaxies in the Virgo cluster, the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. For each detected source, we measure its position, magnitudes in the F475W (~Sloan g) and F850LP (~Sloan z) bandpasses, half-light radii obtained by fitting point-spread function-convolved King models to the observed light distribution, and an estimate of the probabilty {p}_{GC_} that each cataloged source is a GC. These measurements are presented for 9136 sources, of which 6275 have {p}_{GC_}>=slant 0.5, and are thus likely GCs. Based on observations with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope obtained at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under NASA contract NAS 5-26555.
