XMM-ATLAS survey


The XMM-ATLAS survey covers 8 sq. degrees of the Hesrchel ATLAS Science Demonstration Phase (SDP) with the XMM-Newton observatory in mosaic mode (total requested exposure 300 ksec). The H-ATLAS (PACS & SPIRE) survey covers regions where excellent quality multi-wavelength data exist including the GAMA AAT spectroscopic survey as well near-IR data from the UKIDS survey. The proposed observations will provide by far the largest contiguous area mid-IR/submm survey with X-ray containing about 6000 250micron and 2000 X-ray sources. The major scientific goal is to place strong constraints on the link between AGN and star-formation activity in the low-redshift (z<0.5) Universe.
