[138.04] The Low Frequency Radio Counterpart to the XMM Large Scale Structure Survey

A. S. Cohen (NRL), H. J. A. Rottgering (Leiden), N. E. Kassim (NRL)

The XMM Large Scale Structure survey (XMM-LSS) is a major project underway to map the large scale structure of the universe out to cosmological distances. An 8x8 square degree region will be surveyed by XMM with planned optical follow-up to produce a three dimensional map of many hundreds of clusters out to a redshift of z = 1. To explore the relation of the large scale structure to the location and properties of extragalactic radio sources, the XMM-LSS project includes a low frequency radio survey of this region in addition to the X-ray and optical data. This will provide unprecedented insight into how the environment of radio sources influences their formation and evolution. Here, we present preliminary results from our 325 MHz and 74 MHz surveys in this region. This survey was made possible by recent advances in both hardware and data reduction algorithms which we describe.
