Deep JVLA imaging of GOODS-N at 20 cm.
Abstract (from CDS):
New wideband continuum observations in the 1-2 GHz band of the GOODS-N field using NSF's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) are presented. The best image with an effective frequency of 1525 MHz reaches an rms noise in the field center of 2.2 µJy, with 1.''6 resolution. A catalog of 795 sources is presented covering a radius of 9 arcminutes centered near the nominal center for the GOODS-N field, very near the nominal VLA pointing center for the observations. Optical/NIR identifications and redshift estimates both from ground-based and HST observations are discussed. Using these optical/NIR data, it is most likely that fewer than 2% of the sources without confusion problems do not have a correct identification. A large subset of the detected sources have radio sizes >1''. It is shown that the radio orientations for such sources correlate well with the HST source orientations, especially for z < 1. This suggests that a least a large subset of the 10 kpc-scale disks of luminous infrared/ultraluminous infrared galaxies (LIRG/ULIRG) have strong star formation, not just in the nucleus. For the half of the objects with z > 1, the sample must be some mixture of very high star formation rates, typically 300 M☉ yr–1, assuming pure star formation, and an active galactic nucleus (AGN) or a mixed AGN/star formation population.
