|Dark matter in the inner parts of barred galaxies: The data|
This paper presents surface photometry (B,V,I,J,H,K) and Hαrotation curves of 27 isolated spiral galaxies. The final goal is toobtain the mass distribution of a sample of isolated spiral galaxies inorder to model their gas kinematics. This is then compared to theobserved rotation curve, to determine the necessity of a dark halo inthe inner parts (Perez et al. 2004, A&A, 424, 799). The azimuthallyaveraged radial surface brightness profiles and the integratedmagnitudes obtained from ellipse fitting are given for each of thesample galaxies. The ellipse fitting technique applied to the lightdistribution also allowed us to obtain the size of the bar, and theinclination and position angle of the outer isophotes that allow thegalaxy deprojection. Using these profiles, 1-D disk-bulge decompositionwas performed to obtain the disk scale-length and the bulge effectiveradius for the different bands. Through the fitting of a parametricfunction to the observed rotation curve, the maximum rotational velocityand the corresponding radius was obtained. The correlation between thebulge and disk parameters is in agreement with previous studies (de Jong1996a, A&A, 313, 45; Márquez & Moles 1999, A&A, 344,421; Baggett et al. 1998, AJ, 116, 1626). Regarding the Kormendyrelation (Kormendy 1977, ApJ, 218, 333), in agreement with de Jong, nocorrelation between the bulge effective radius and its surfacebrightness is found, possibly due to the small range of bulge magnitudescovered. We find a smaller scatter in the structural relations whencompared to non-isolated samples in agreement with Márquez &Moles (1999). Finally, a correlation between the disk scale-length andthe bar size is observed, possibly reflecting the rapid growth of a bar.
|Arcsecond Positions of UGC Galaxies|
We present accurate B1950 and J2000 positions for all confirmed galaxiesin the Uppsala General Catalog (UGC). The positions were measuredvisually from Digitized Sky Survey images with rms uncertaintiesσ<=[(1.2")2+(θ/100)2]1/2,where θ is the major-axis diameter. We compared each galaxymeasured with the original UGC description to ensure high reliability.The full position list is available in the electronic version only.
|The I-Band Tully-Fisher Relation for SC Galaxies: 21 Centimeter H I Line Data|
A compilation of 21 cm line spectral parameters specifically designedfor application of the Tully-Fisher (TF) distance method is presentedfor 1201 spiral galaxies, primarily field Sc galaxies, for which opticalI-band photometric imaging is also available. New H I line spectra havebeen obtained for 881 galaxies. For an additional 320 galaxies, spectraavailable in a digital archive have been reexamined to allow applicationof a single algorithm for the derivation of the TF velocity widthparameter. A velocity width algorithm is used that provides a robustmeasurement of rotational velocity and permits an estimate of the erroron that width taking into account the effects of instrumental broadeningand signal-to-noise. The digital data are used to establish regressionrelations between measurements of velocity widths using other commonprescriptions so that comparable widths can be derived throughconversion of values published in the literature. The uniform H I linewidths presented here provide the rotational velocity measurement to beused in deriving peculiar velocities via the TF method.
|The I-Band Tully-Fisher Relation for SC Galaxies: Optical Imaging Data|
Properties derived from the analysis of photometric I-band imagingobservations are presented for 1727 inclined spiral galaxies, mostly oftypes Sbc and Sc. The reduction, parameter extraction, and errorestimation procedures are discussed in detail. The asymptotic behaviorof the magnitude curve of growth and the radial variation in ellipticityand position angle are used in combination with the linearity of thesurface brightness falloff to fit the disk portion of the profile. TotalI-band magnitudes are calculated by extrapolating the detected surfacebrightness profile to a radius of eight disk scale lengths. Errors inthe magnitudes, typically ~0.04 mag, are dominated by uncertainties inthe sky subtraction and disk-fitting procedures. Comparison is made withthe similar imaging database of Mathewson, Ford, & Buchhorn, both aspresented originally by those authors and after reanalyzing theirdigital reduction files using identical disk-fitting procedures. Directcomparison is made of profile details for 292 galaxies observed incommon. Although some differences occur, good agreement is found,proving that the two data sets can be used in combination with onlyminor accommodation of those differences. The compilation of opticalproperties presented here is optimized for use in applications of theTully-Fisher relation as a secondary distance indicator in studies ofthe local peculiar velocity field.
|Parameters of 2447 Southern Spiral Galaxies for Use in the Tully-Fisher Relation|
I-band luminosities, rotational velocities, and redshifts of 1092 spiralgalaxies have been measured by CCD photometry and Hα spectroscopyusing the 1 m and 2.3 m telescopes at Siding Spring Observatory,respectively. The results are tabulated. Luminosity profiles andHα rotation curves are given for the galaxies. When these resultsare combined with similar data for 1355 spiral galaxies publishedpreviously (Mathewson, Ford, & Buchhorn, hereafter Paper I), itprovides a large, uniform, and unique data set with which to measure,via the Tully-Fisher relation, the peculiar velocities of galaxies inthe local universe to a distance of 11,000 km s^-1^ (Mathewson &Ford). Taking advantage of the opportunity for publishing this data inmachine-readable form, in the CD-ROM, we have also included similar datafor the 1355 galaxies in Paper I.
|An image database. II. Catalogue between δ=-30deg and δ=70deg.|
A preliminary list of 68.040 galaxies was built from extraction of35.841 digitized images of the Palomar Sky Survey (Paper I). For eachgalaxy, the basic parameters are obtained: coordinates, diameter, axisratio, total magnitude, position angle. On this preliminary list, weapply severe selection rules to get a catalog of 28.000 galaxies, wellidentified and well documented. For each parameter, a comparison is madewith standard measurements. The accuracy of the raw photometricparameters is quite good despite of the simplicity of the method.Without any local correction, the standard error on the total magnitudeis about 0.5 magnitude up to a total magnitude of B_T_=17. Significantsecondary effects are detected concerning the magnitudes: distance toplate center effect and air-mass effect.

I-band CCD photometry was obtained forall the bright galaxies and part of the sample of faint galaxies in thetwo local volumes was studied.

|High signal-to-noise ratio observations of H I in 243 galaxies|
The 21 cm spectral-line system of the Arecibo Observatory was used tomeasure neutral hydrogen emission from 243 faint galaxies. Most lie nearthe plane of the Local Supercluster. All observations reach anunsmoothed signal-to-noise ratio of at least 7.0; the average for theset is 23. The resulting data are used to estimate H I masses, systemicvelocities, and accurate profile widths at 20 percent, 25 percent, 50percent, and 80 percent of peak intensity levels. The widths are used tocalibrate directly the bias introduced by popular data-smoothingoperation. The data include observations of 65 objects with previouslyunknown redshifts.
|The distribution of the spiral galaxies in the direction of the Coma/A 1367 supercluster|
The three-dimensional distribution of spiral galaxies is analyzed for a1080 sq deg region surrounding the Coma cluster, A 1367 and Zw 74-23(NGC 5416 cluster). H I observations of spiral galaxies having angulardiameters less than 2 arcmin, with the exception of six NGC objects andone IC object, are used, detecting 87 galaxies with 67 redshiftsreported for the first time. A population of faint isolated galaxies asmuch as 30 deg from Coma or A 1367 is found having radial velocitiesnear 7000 km/s, and a group between Coma and A 1367 is found containingno galaxies with m(p) less than 15.0. South of A 1367 three groups arefound located 12 deg from the core with radial velocities near 7000 km/sand a projected diameter less than 2 Mpc. South of 20 deg declination atleast four clusters and isolated galaxies are found which could be partof the southern extension of the Coma-A 1367 supercluster. Assuming allthe detected isolated spirals belong to the Coma-A 1367 supercluster,the angular extent of the supercluster is almost a radian in the planeof the sky.
