Deep ASKAP EMU Survey of the GAMA23 field
by Gürkan et al.
Gürkan et al. present ASKAP observations of the Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) 23h field. The survey was carried out at 887.5 MHz and covers a ∼83 square degree field. The final mosaic has an angular resolution of 10 arcsec and a central rms noise of around 38 micro-Jy per beam. The derived radio source catalogue has 39812 entries and includes the discovery of 63 new giant radio galaxies, an example of which is shown above. The background image is from KiDS (the Kilo-Degree Survey). The salmon colour density maps show the ASKAP data, and the cyan cross marks the host galaxy position.
