A Database of UV-Optical Spectra of Nearby Quiescent and Active Galaxies
The UV spectra cover the wavelength range 1200-3200 Angstrom with a resolution of 5-8 Angstrom. The optical spectra were obtained at KPNO and CTIO and cover the spectral range 3200-7500 Angstrom with 10 Angstrom resolution (Northern sample) or 3200-10000 Angstrom with 5.5-8 Angstrom resolution (Southern sample). More details on the observations can be found in this README file.
For each galaxy, a combined UV-optical spectrum is provided in FITS format. The FITS files are collected in one compressed (gzip) tar file (1.7 Mbytes), which also includes a copy of the README file.
