Dawn Erb’s talk

She talked about pretty much every properties of high redshift galaxies (kinematics, metalicity, mass, age) around z~2. Among ~1000 samples, about 100 galaxies show high star formation rate, complex rest frame UV morphology. She also showed the mass-metalicity relation and kinematic information of them.

To study their physical properties in more detail, it would be very interesting to categorize the sample by different physical mechanisms(e.g. merger vs non-merger, group vs field, early vs late type) and perform the same analysis for each group. This would requires larger sample, high resolution image and broad range of spectrum etc. as Dawn mentioned in her talk.
