The 2Jy sample 
of southern radio galaxies

This site presents the data from over 20 years of collaborative work on the 2 Jansky sample of southern radio galaxies defined as flux densities above 2 Jy at 2.7GHz, delta<+10 degrees and z<0.7.

Two decades of observations has led to a wealth of data for these objects including: Deep optical imaging and spectra from Gemini and the ESO observatories; extensive radio imaging/mapping from ATCA and the VLA; near, mid and far-infrared imaging and spectra from UKIRT, Spitzer and Herschel; high frequency radio core imaging with ATCA and the VLA; Chandra and XMM X-ray imaging as well as a program of sub-mm observations with APEX-LABOCA.

Included in this site is a description of the sample, tables of basic parameters and data for all the objects. Individual object pages give details on every galaxy where you can also download available reduced data and view imaging and spectra. Additionally there are links to all our publications related to the sample. We hope this site will be a useful resource for you, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
