Data Release 4

Some of the data included in the DEEP2 DR4 were obtained at the W. M. Keck Observatory, which is operated as a scientific partnership among the California Institute of Technology, the University of California, and the National Aeornautics and Space Administration. The Observatory was made possible by the generous financial support of the W. M. Keck Foundation.

The DEIMOS spectrograph was funded by grants from CARA (Keck Observatory) and UCO/Lick Observatory, a NSF Facilities and Infrastructure grant (ARI92-14621), the Center for Particle Astrophysics, and by gifts from Sun Microsystems and the Quantum Corporation.

Primary imaging data for the DEEP2 survey was collected using the Canada France Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), which is operated by the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, the Institute National des Sciences de l'Univers of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique of France, and the University of Hawaii.
