1 The Kilo-Degree Survey Konrad Kuijken Leiden Observatory

2 Survey parameters Area covered Median redshift Image quality Wavelength coverage are a z med U  K SDSS UKIDSS PS1 KiDS VIKING CFHT-D CFHT-W DES PS4 4 200 1500 5000 9000 20000 LSST 0.2 0.8 1.0 DUNE

3 Science Objectives Dark matter distribution through weak lensing Collateral damage: –Galaxy evolution as related to environment –Cluster counts/samples –Stellar halo –Faint end of stellar Lum.Fn. –High-z qso’s

4 Dark matter / weak lensing Mass concentrations along line of sight deflect light rays. Gradient  distortion  correlated ellipticities Probe of –Galaxy halos: mass, extent, shape –Large scale structure mass power spectrum As function of source redshift: –Growth history  H(z)

5 Cosmology with lensing Structure growth rate depends on expansion history of universe Measure both  test of GR Space missions (JDEM, EDEM) –Ground-based surveys pave the way

6 Technical requirements Shears Good image quality –Service mode, autofocus Well-behaved PSF –VST design –Good astrometry High-fidelity ellipticities –STEP project –KSB, shapelets, lensfit? Redshifts Photo-z’s, many bands –KiDS + VIKING Photometric calibration –Calibration plan –Overlap with SDSS, S.SkyMapper –extinction High-fidelity photo-z’s –PSF-matched aperture phot. –PHAT project –Spectroscopic calibration

7 Extinction N: equator –  10 - 15:50h –  -5 - +4 o –14 sq.deg in W2 S: SGP area –  22 - 3:30h –  -25 - -35 o

8 Other data Spectroscopy –2dF, SDSS, GAMA UKIDSS VIKING (VISTA) YZJHK Herschel Spitzer post-cryo

9 60 b=45 30 -75 b=-60 1500 sq.deg. in ugriZYJHK +2000 sq.deg. in i (+UKIDSS YJHK) SDSS + UKIDSS 2dF

10 GAMA Redshift survey to r=19.8 –2,000 gals/sq.deg. –140 sq.deg. Total –AA  2008-2010 Add to 2dF and SDSS spectra in hand ! March: 15 nights, 35000 redshifts!


12 H1K Herschel Key programme –550 sq.deg. awarded: 250 in KiDS-S, 150 in KiDS-N

13 KiDS & AstroWISE Environment for advanced pipelines db of primary data –Science exposures –Calibration db of secondary data: –Extinction map –IR image surveys –Spectroscopic surveys
