The Catalog of Southern Ringed Galaxies
The Catalog of Southern Ringed Galaxies (CSRG) is a comprehensivecompilation of diameters, axis ratios, relative bar position angles, andmorphologies of inner and outer rings, pseudorings, and lenses in 3692galaxies south of declination -17 deg. The purpose of the catalog is toevaluate the idea that these ring phenomena are related to orbitalresonances with a bar or oval in galaxy potentials. The catalog is basedon visual inspection of most of the 606 fields of the Science ResearchCouncil (SRC) IIIa-J southern sky survey, with the ESO-B, ESO-R, andPalomar Sky surveys used as auxiliaries when needed for overexposed coreregions. The catalog is most complete for SRC fields 1-303 (mostly southof declination -42 deg). In addition to ringed galaxies, a list of 859mostly nonringed galaxies intended for comparison with other catalogs isprovided. Other findings from the CSRG that are not based on statisticsare the identification of intrinsic bar/ring misalignment; bars whichunderfill inner rings; dimpling of R'1pseudorings; pointy, rectangular, or hexagonal inner or outer ringshapes; a peculiar polar-ring-related system; and other extreme examplesof spiral structure and ring morphology.

A large sample of southern IRAS galaxies - Spectral classes and superclustering
Results are presented of an extensive spectroscopic survey of IRASgalaxies, in three Southern-Hemisphere fields totaling about 0.5 sr.Spectroscopic observations have been made of 527 galaxies which arecandidates for 474 IRAS sources. Together with published data, there arenow measured redshifts for almost 850 of the 1178 selected IRAS galaxiesin these fields. This measured sample includes nearly all galaxies athigh redshifts, and hense high infrared luminosities, within thesefields. Classification of more than 350 of these galaxies usingemission-line ratios and line widths shows that about 90 percent havestarburst characteristics. Two distinct groups of starburst galaxies inthe sample display forbidden O III-line intensities which significantlyexceed those observed in optically selected starburst galaxies. One ofthese groups, with strong N II forbidden lines, may be related to linersand/or Seyfert galaxies. The other, with weak N II forbidden-lineemission, displays unusually narrow lines; this group is interpreted interms of the youngest phase of starburst activity.

Southern Sky Redshift Survey - The catalog
The catalog of radial velocities for galaxies which comprise thediameter-limited sample of the Southern Sky Redshift Survey ispresented. It consolidates the data of observations carried out at theLas Campanas Observatory, Observatorio Nacional, and South AfricanAstronomical Observatory. The criteria used for the sample selection aredescribed, as well as the observational procedures and the techniqueutilized to obtain the final radial velocities. The intercomparisonbetween radial velocity measurements from different telescopes indicatesthat the final data base is fairly homogeneous with a typical error ofabout 40 km/s. The sample is at present 90 percent complete, and themissing galaxies are predominantly objects with very low surfacebrightness for which it is very difficult to obtain optical redshifts.
