Massive Galaxy Project
The Massive Galaxy Project is a multi-pronged effort to characterize and understand the physical processes that drive the evolution of the most massive galaxies in the universe.
Our goals are to answer questions such as, are massive galaxies fundamentally multi-component systems and when did their components assemble? What is their growth rate over cosmic time? How do they reflect and influence their environment?
To tackle this broad range of questions, we make use of a variety of data sets from COSMOS, BOSS, the Stripe 82 co-adds, and IFU observations from the MaNGA survey.
The Massive Galaxy Project includes the following results and data-products:
