[6.08] Pure parallel Near-UV observations with WFPC2 within the GOODS Fields.

We report the current status and preliminary results of a program of pure parallel near-ultraviolet observations with the WFPC2 camera on the Hubble Space Telescope. The parallel images are taken during the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) observations of the GOODS (Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey) treasury fields in the Hubble Deep Field-North and Chandra Deep Field-South Regions. We use the wide U filter (F300W) which peaks at 2760{Å}, ensuring that the data are complementary to ACS data which does not cover the ultraviolet range. With these data, we will conduct studies of galaxy properties and evolution, and (i) determine the morphological k-correction, and the location of star formation within galaxies at intermediate redshifts (0
