Counting the Ghosts: Optical Field Surveys for Low Surface Brightness Galaxies

  • Julianne J. Dalcanton (a1)

Abstract

Given the difficulties in detecting even a single LSB, surveying statistically significant numbers of LSBs presents a daunting task. Large, systematic surveys with well understood selection criteria are necessary for assessing the full cosmological significance of the LSB population. Here I briefly review some of the progress which has been made in the last ten years, and suggest strategies which may prove fruitful in the future.
