Value Added Catalogs

In addition to the primary SDSS photometry and spectroscopy, there are a few extra catalogs created by our collaborators that are distributed through the SAS. These Value-Added Catalogs (VACs) are listed below, and include catalogs that were released in earlier data releases.

eBOSS DR16 LSS multi-tracer EZmock catalogues

Scientific Analysis Catalog

EZmock catalogues for eBOSS DR16 Large Scale Structre tracers

Cheng Zhao, Chia-Hsun Chuang, Julian Bautista, Arnaud de Mattia, eBOSS


This VAC contains 1000 realizations of synthetic clustering catalogues, constructed using the effective Zel'dovich approximation mock generator (EZmock; Chuang et al. 2015), for each type of the tracers used for the baryon acoustic oscillation and redshift space distortion analysis of eBOSS DR16. This mocks cover a redshift range from 0.6 to 2.2, for reliable estimates of covariances matrices and test the robustness of the analysis pipeline with respect to observational systematics. For more details on the construction of this VAC, and the clustering properties of the EZMock catalogs, please see Zhao et al. (2021).
