Resource Record Summary

Image Service:
Cosmic Assembly Near-IR Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS)

Short name: CANDELS
IVOA Identifier: ivo://mast.stsci/candels
DOI (Digital Object Identifier): 10.17909/T94S3X
Publisher: Space Telescope Science Institute Archiveivo://archive.stsci.edu/stsci-arc[Pub. ID]

VO Compliance: Level 2: This is a VO-compliant resource.
Status: active
Registered: 2006 Jul 01 00:00:00Z


CANDELS is designed to document the first third of galactic evolution from z = 8 to 1.5 via deep imaging of more than 250,000 galaxies with WFC3/IR and ACS. It will also find the first Type Ia SNe beyond z greater than 1.5 and establish their accuracy as standard candles for cosmology. Five premier multi-wavelength sky regions are selected; each has multi-wavelength data from Spitzer and other facilities, and has extensive spectroscopy of the brighter galaxies. The use of five widely separated fields mitigates cosmic variance and yields statistically robust and complete samples of galaxies down to 109 solar masses out to z ~ 8.
