PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) Overview
PEP Overview PEP Primary Data Access IRSA Catalog Search Tool: PEP


The PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) is a Herschel guaranteed time deep extragalactic survey (KPGT_dlutz_1) targeting six "blank fields", ten lensing clusters of galaxies, and two z ~1 clusters at wavelengths of 100 and 160 microns. PEP includes SPIRE observations of the two z ~1 clusters at wavelengths of 250, 350, and 500 microns. In many fields, SPIRE maps are available from the Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey (HerMES). In addition, deep SPIRE GOODS-N data are provided by the GOODS-Herschel program (Elbaz et al. 2011).

If you use PEP data, please cite both the journal article Lutz et al. 2011 and the dataset Digital Object Identifier (DOI): 10.26131/IRSA83.
