MPA-JHU Stellar Masses

Guinevere Kauffmann
Scientific Analysis Catalog

The Max Planck for Astrophysics (MPA) and Johns Hopkins University (JHU) groups provide galaxy properties for all DR8 galaxy spectra, using the Galspec product, based on the methods of Brinchmann et al. (2004), Kauffmann et al. (2003), and Tremonti et al. (2004). The catalog includes emission lines and derived galaxy parameters, such as BPT (Baldwin, Phillips & Terlevich) properties, stellar mass, nebular oxygen abundance, and (specific) star formation rate. This catalog was deprecated in DR12 in favor of the Wisconsin, Portsmouth, and Granada team analyses of the same data, but are provided for comparison with the other galaxy property measurements listed here.
