An 850-micron SCUBA map of the Groth Strip and reliable source extraction
MetadataShow full item record
We present an 850-micron map and list of candidate sources in a 70 arcmin^2 sub-area of the Groth Strip observed using SCUBA. We initially detect 7 candidate sources with signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) between 3.0 and 3.5 and 4 candidate sources with SNR > 3.5. Simulations suggest that on average in a map this size one expects 1.6 false positive sources for SNR > 3.5 and 4.5 for 3 3.5 which has a reasonable chance of being real.
