2012A&A...540A.106T Groups and clusters of galaxies in the SDSS DR8. Value-added catalogues Tempel, E.; Tago, E.; Liivamagi, L. J. Abstract. Aims: We intend to compile a new galaxy group and cluster sample of the latest available SDSS data, adding several parameter for the purpose of studying the supercluster network, galaxy and group evolution, and their connection to the surrounding environment. Methods: We used a modified friends-of-friends (FoF) method with a variable linking length in the transverse and radial directions to eliminate selection effects and to find reliably as many groups as possible. Using the galaxies as a basis, we calculated the luminosity density field. Results: We create a new catalogue of groups and clusters for the SDSS data release 8 sample. We find and add environmental parameters to our catalogue, together with other galaxy parameters (e.g., morphology), missing from our previous catalogues. We take into account various selection effects caused by a magnitude limited galaxy sample. Our final sample contains 576 493 galaxies and 77 858 groups. Key words: catalogs, galaxies: clusters: general, galaxies: groups: general, galaxies: statistics, large-scale structure of Universe, cosmology: observations
