The Australia Telescope Large Area Survey (ATLAS; Norris et al. 2006) is the widest deep radio survey to date, covering approximately 7 square degrees over two fields, with extensive complementary data. We are investigating all possible discriminants between active galactic nuclei (AGN) and star-forming galaxies (SFG) in ATLAS, to determine a robust formula for distinguishing the two.
