Survey information

SERVS is a warm Spitzer survey which images approximately 18 square degrees in the centers of the SWIRE XMM-LSS, ELAIS-S1, CDFS, Lockman and ELAIS-N1 fields to 20min (2mu Jy) depth at 3.6 and 4.5 microns. SERVS overlaps with the VISTA-VIDEO near infrared and Herschel-HERMES and SCUBA2-S2CLS far-infrared surveys. SERVS data are now available to all through IRSA at the link below. In 2014 we were awarded a further 1400hr to double the total survey area, covering the entirety of the LSST deep drilling fields in XMM-LSS, CDFS and ES1.

Science Goals

SERVS will take a complete census of the population of massive galaxies in the redshift range ~1-6 within a volume of ~0.8 cubic Gpc, large enough to overcome the effects of Cosmic Variance. Our key goals are:
