ZFOURGE & MOSEL : Emergent Galaxies at z~3.5
This event is part of the Physics Department Colloquia Series.
ZFOURGE and MOSEL are deep observational surveys that track how galaxies assemble over cosmic time. ZFOURGE identifies approximately 70,000 objects up to redshifts of z~7 using a custom set of near-infrared imaging filters that provide high precision photometric redshifts. MOSEL targets emergent galaxies from ZFOURGE for spectroscopic follow-up to track this rapidly evolving population. Here I highlight results that include building a library of composite Spectral Energy Distributions (SED), using the SED fitting code Prospector to determine star formation histories for a range of galaxy populations, and comparing galaxy kinematics at z~3 to cosmological simulations.
