GOODS/FORS2 Final Data Release: Version 3.0

Published: 07 Nov 2007

As part of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS), multi-object, optical to NIR spectroscopy in the Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-S) has been carried out, using the FORS2 instrument mounted at the Kueyen Unit Telescope of the VLT at ESO's Cerro Paranal Observatory, Chile.

This final, cumulative data release of spectroscopy of faint galaxies in the Chandra Deep Field South (CDF-S), resulting from the ESO/GOODS large program under program IDs 170.A-0788, 074.A-0709, and 275.A-5060 (PI Cesarsky), supersedes all previous releases. This release accumulates 1715 spectra of 1225 unique targets which have been obtained with the FORS2 spectrograph between September 2002 and October 2006, providing in total 1165 redshift measurements.
