Galaxy evolution with future wide-field space missions

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

    Abstract

    Future studies of: (1) galaxy property relationships, (2) environmental dependencies, and (3) the merger rate and accretion histories will require: (a) large solid angle (with large area/boundary ratio), (b) multi-band imaging, (c) high signal-to-noise and high resolution imaging, and (d) spectroscopy. All of these things will be provided by the next generation of wide-field surveys.
