Description:

Here students will have an opportunity to measure redshifts for several galaxies using a set of common spectral lines here. While the spectra that students will be using have many lines (emission and absorption) students must concentrate on using the following sets: calcium H and K and hydrogen emission lines . Students are asked to determine if there is a correlation between the presence of emission lines in the spectra and the overall appearance (morphology) of the galaxy.
