REDSHIFT DISTRIBUTION OF K SELECTED GALAXIES

The redshift distribution of the K selected galaxy sample as a function of K magnitude for the Hubble deep field (left panels) and for the Hawaii deep fields. The solid histogram shows the distribution of galaxies with spectroscopic redshifts. For the Hubble field we have shown the remaining objects at their color estimated redshift (open histogram) while for the Hawaii fields we show unobserved objects at z=3.1 and unidentified objects at z=3. The completeness of identification in the Hawaii fields is also shown.
