Gal-G8: Galaxy Detection Fraction vs. CFHTLS Wide¶
Galaxy detection fraction at m??, when referenced to a CFHLS Wide catalog, should have RMS variation <2% when binned into subareas as large as 4x4 degrees. When further subdivided by photometric redshift, should have RMS<5%.
The CFHTLS W1 field covers 72 deg^2, a substantial portion of which should overlap the SV fields. The mean limiting magnitude in g,r,i,z (MegaCam AB) is [25.47,24.82,24.48,23.60]. The catalogs are 80% complete in g,r,i,z to 24.7,24.0,23.7,22.9].
