The MOSFIRE Deep Evolution Field Survey

 

The MOSFIRE Deep Evolution Field (MOSDEF) survey is a large multi-year approved project with MOSFIRE on the Keck I telescope. With MOSDEF we will observe the stellar, gaseous and chemical content of ~2000 galaxies when the Universe was 1.5 to 4.5 billion years old. The MOSDEF survey will be executed over four spring semesters, and will be completed in the spring of 2016.
