[48.01] An Introduction to the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey

B. T. Jannuzi, A. Dey, M. J. I. Brown (NOAO), G. P. Tiede (Bowling Green), NDWFS Team

The NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey (NDWFS) is a very deep optical and IR (BWRIJHK) imaging survey of 18 square degrees of the sky with the primary goal of studying the evolution of large-scale structure from redshift 1 to 4. The survey enables investigation of the formation and evolution of galaxies and the detection of luminous, very distant (z>4), star-forming galaxies and quasars. The 9.3 square degree Boötes sub-field of the survey is of particular interest because of the extensive multi-wavelength observations now available. These include Chandra (X-rays), GALEX (UV), Spitzer (near, mid, and far IR), the VLA, and Westerbork (radio). I will review the design of the survey and the processing of the optical and near-IR imaging data as a prelude to the talks following in the special session on the NDWFS Boötes field.

Our research is supported by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. (AURA) under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
