Abstract:

Redshift surveys are one of the prime tools of observational cosmology. Imaging surveys of the whole sky are now available at a wide range of wavelengths, and provide a basis for the new generation of massive redshift surveys currently in progress. The very large datasets produced by these surveys call for new and sophisticated approaches to the analysis of large-scale structure and the galaxy population. These issues, and some preliminary results from the new redshift surveys, were discussed at the second Coral Sea Cosmology Conference, held at Dunk Island on 24-28 August 1999. This is a summary of the conference; the full conference proceedings are on the WWW at http://www.mso.anu.edu.au/DunkIsland/Proceedings.

Keywords: surveys - cosmology: observations - cosmology: large-scale structure of the universe - galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: evolution
