The Extragalactic Surveys group works on several topics related to the evolution of galaxies in the Universe. We carry out multiwavelength wide-area surveys to obtain information about large samples of galaxies. Our group is involved in the definition of particular surveys as well as in the explotation of existent public surveys; we also develop tools to select targets and to analyse data.
Our scientific interests include: the study of the star-formation history of the Universe; determination of the density of galaxy populations such as starbursts, dwarf galaxies, AGNs, quasars, etc.; identification of high-redshift galaxies and quasars; metallicity evolution; physics of broad absorption line (BAL) quasars.
Our members are involved in the following surveys:
We also participate in large telescope instruments:
