Journal Article
Fraser-McKelvie, A., Brown, M. J. I., Pimbblet, K. A., Dolley, T., Crossett, J. P., & Bonne, N. J. (2016). A photometrically and spectroscopically confirmed population of passive spiral galaxies. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters, 462(1), L11-L15. doi:10.1093/mnrasl/slw117

We have identified a population of passive spiral galaxies from photometry and integral field spectroscopy. We selected z < 0.035 spiral galaxies that have WISE colours consistent with little mid-infrared emission from warm dust. Matched aperture pho... Read More

The influence of red spiral galaxies on the shape of the local K-band luminosity function (2015)
Journal Article
Pimbblet, K. A., Bonne, N. J., Brown, M. J. I., & Jones, H. (2015). The influence of red spiral galaxies on the shape of the local K-band luminosity function. The Astrophysical journal, 799(2), doi:10.1088/0004-637x/799/2/160. ISSN 0004-637X

We have determined K-band luminosity functions for 13,325 local universe galaxies as a function of morphology and color (for Ktot ≤ 10.75). Our sample is drawn from the Two Micron All Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog, with all sample galaxies havin... Read More
