Release of CO(2-1) Spectra from APEX Low-redshift Legacy Survey for MOlecular Gas

Published: 17 May 2017
Example of ALLSMOG CO (2-1) spectrum

The APEX Low-redshift Legacy Survey for MOlecular Gas ( ALLSMOG, PI J. Wagg) has observed the CO(2-1) line in a sample of 88 galaxies in the Local Universe (0.01 < z < 0.03). The ALLSMOG observations add information on cold molecular gas content of all sources in this sample and the spectra are available in the ALLSMOG Phase 3 release.

The ALLSMOG release makes the combined CO(2-1) spectra available to users for comparison with other spectral line data. All the targets are already well characterized in terms of several derived and measured physical quantities (e.g., star formation rates, stellar masses, gas-phase metallicities and atomic HI gas masses). The spectra either have peak S/N > 3, or reach a uniform depth of 0.8 mK (31 mJy) per 50 km s-1 channel for the non-detections. Further details are given in the data release paper by Cicone et al. (2017; PDF) and the accompanying release description.
