" The Atlas3D Project: A Panchromatic Census of Nearby Early-Type Galaxies "

Richard McDermid

(Gemini Observatory)

Atlas3D is a new survey combining optical integral-field spectroscopy and multi-band imaging with radio and millimeter interferometry for a complete, volume-limited sample of 260 early-type galaxies observed within the local 40 Mpc volume - the largest survey of its kind. This K-band selected sample spans a range in mass from 10e10 to 10e12 solar masses, and probes two orders of magnitude in local galaxy density, giving a significantly larger range in mass and environment than previous similar works. I will present an overview of the project and recent results, then focus on the stellar populations of the sample and trends with other global properties uniquely accessible to our survey.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
