Other tools


The code SED3FIT (Berta et al. 2013a) performs galaxy SED fitting with a combination of three components: stellar emission; dust emission from star formation; and a possible dusty torus/AGN. The stellar and dust emission are linked by energy balance. Torus emission is simultaneously - but independently - included. The current implementation adopts Bruzual & Charlot (2003) stellar libraries, da Cunha et al. (2008) IR-dust libraries, and Feltre et al. (2012) torus+disc models. Some components are to be externally retrieved (see Read-Me file).
The SED3FIT package can be downloaded here.

Cutout tool

cutout generator for the COSMOS photometric data has been produced by the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) team. Users can input either catalogue IDs from the Davies et al (2015) spectroscopic catalogs or RA/DEC positions, and extract cutout regions over a broad range of photometric datasets. Users can overlay source positions, zCOSMOS-bright slit positions and contours from any specified band. Images can also be dynamically scaled using a number of scaling functions and three colour images can be produced using any bands. Lastly, for catalogue IDs, redshift information for all publicly available redshifts is provided.

CSTACK: Stacking Analysis of Chandra Images On the Web

If you have a set of objects that are not resolved X-ray sources themselves, but would like to know their mean X-ray flux by an X-ray stacking analysis, your results are just a click away! See http://lambic.astrosen.unam.mx/cstack/ (mirror: http://cstack.ucsd.edu/cstack/). A screenshot example of the CSTACK output is available here.

Currently, the central 0.9 deg2 C-COSMOS is available to the public (login as guest with the same password) for the stacking analysis. The COSMOS Legacy survey datasets are also included. Contact Francesca Civano (francesca.civano [at] gmail.com) for the password for analyses involving the COSMOS Legacy dataset. 

For general and technical inquiries about CSTACK, contact Takamitsu Miyaji - miyaji [at] astrosen.unam.mx


Herschel Extragalactic Legacy Project (HELP)

The Herschel Extragalactic Legacy Project (HELP)’s main objective is to provide a rich new data set characterising the physical properties of hundreds of thousands of distant galaxies. Using the Herschel Legacy Fields as a base, we aim to use a broad range of multi-wavelength data to characterize the individual sources within the catalogue, lowering the barriers to high redshift statistical science.
