S-COSMOS Archive

S-COSMOS is a deep infrared imaging survey carried out with the Spitzer Space Telescope. The survey covers the entire 2 square degrees of the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field. The S-COSMOS and COSMOS projects are closely coupled; therefore, their data are served as one large COSMOS Archive, using IRSA's general search service, Atlas. S-COSMOS is a Spitzer Legacy Program. The S-COSMOS data release includes both IRAC and MIPS data. The IRAC data products (images and catalog) are part of the Spitzer General Observer Cycle 2 (GO2) program, while the MIPS data products (images and catalogs) are part of the Spitzer General Observer Cycle 2+3 (GO2+3) programs.

COSMOS is an astronomical survey designed to probe the formation and evolution of galaxies as a function of cosmic time (redshift) and large scale structural environment. The survey covers a 2 square degree equatorial field with imaging by most of the major space-based telescopes (Hubble, Spitzer, GALEX, XMM, Chandra) and a number of large ground based telescopes (Subaru, VLA, ESO-VLT, UKIRT, NOAO, CFHT, and others). Over 2 million galaxies are detected, spanning 75% of the age of the universe. The COSMOS survey involves almost 100 scientists in a dozen countries.
